About Our Founder

Carol Fountain Nix is the founder and chief creative officer for FountainArts. Carol has worked with many clients in the wine and gourmet industry for years as an entrepreneur and business owner of an interactive media firm. As a leading branding expert, Carol had the opportunity to provide marketing and design services for clients such as master winemaker, Paul Hobbs, and celebrity chef, Lorena Garcia, as well as many notable wineries, restaurants, and luxury home brands.

"Much of my career, perhaps even my life, has somehow led to this venture. I'm so excited about what FountainArts has to offer. We have an amazing team that is dedicated to making sure our retailers and customers are happy with our products."

Realizing her passion for working in this sector, Carol launched FountainArts to feature her signature line of Wine Country™ serving ware, which has since been expanded to include other products such as linens, specialty + home goods and the Noble Vine Collection™ of premium leather goods. Carol creates all lettering and artwork by hand and has meticulously designed each product's form to accommodate the illustrations and calligraphic work.

"I care about the way we are doing business as much as I care about the design and craft that we put into the products. I care that WineNO® is completely non-toxic. I care about that fact that our linens are woven, hand-stitched and produced in my home state of North Carolina. It is meaningful to me that we're working with craftspeople who hand-stitch our leather products. As an entrepreneur, I feel I have a responsibility to keep as much of our labor and product development state-side."

"The Fusion Stemware rack is PERFECT. "We previously purchased a stemware drying rack from another company. While the concept was great, it just didn't work. It wasn't heavy-duty enough and I was nervous about putting my Riedel and Waterford crystal on it. While the other brand came apart, it didn't store flat, took up lots of room, and was pretty much an "eye sore" no matter where we put it. Who wants that when you are entertaining? The Fusion Stemware rack is PERFECT. It is very high quality with rubber tips and chrome finish. It is heavy duty and sturdy and we put our good crystal wine glasses on it without worry - even Riedel Sommeliers and over-sized brandy glasses. Simply pull it out after an evening of wine tasting or after a party - because it folds flat and is easy to store out of sight. This is truly a wine glass drying rack that WORKS. And now there's the Fusion-16. This rack not only holds 16 stems – it hold a decanter as well. If you really need a drying rack this is the one to get PERIOD.""

"FLASH IN THE PAN Two words: I'm impressed. "I had never heard of Carol Nix before learning about her about products: Fusion™ stemware drying racks for wine glasses and a set of wine-themed serving ware. Two words: I'm impressed. The Fusion 8-glass and 16-glass Stemware Racks are smart. You don't want to good fragile wine glasses into a dishwasher. So you wash them by hand and ... what? Immediately dry each and put it away while dinner guests may still be about? You don't have to bother. The Fusion Racks are metal frames with legs that fold flat for storage. But when unfolded, you can hang wine glasses upside down and let them drip dry onto a towel that you'd put below. The 16-glass rack has room in the center to turn a carafe upside down and let it drain as well. As for the Carol Fountain Nix™ Line, Ms. Nix sent an assortment of these heavy square plates. My entire family and people who have come into the house have oohed and awed. Each is named for some varietal, and the color palette and art work are most pleasing. These would make great plates for a party, or even serving pieces or candy dishes for a dressed-up dinner at home." "

"WINE SPECTATOR MAGAZINE: We like the looks and solidity of the Fusion™ Stemware Rack. "There's a lot of fine stemware out there being treated not so nicely. For every hand-polished piece of crystal stored in a cabinet away from the kitchen, there are 10 glasses being dried upside-down on a towel next to the stove, where some garlic and onions are sautéing in olive oil. Here's a simple solution. We like the looks and solidity of the Fusion™ Stemware Rack. Plus it folds. The smaller model is simply for glasses; the larger dries a decanter, too. Now all you need is a sideboard." "
