William Pye Water Scupture

Clearwater Cube

Clearwater Cube was made in collaboration with Arabella Lennox Boyd for her Evening Standard garden at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2000, which won a gold medal. At the time I was considering possibilities for using clear acrylic polymer produced by Reynolds in Colorado which I first encountered at the London Aquarium. While in the USA I met the manufacturer and learned about the properties of this particular polymer, which has no colour and, unlike glass, it does not distort form as it has the apparent density of water.

The stainless steel frame was not originally part of the planned sculpture, but was required by the garden designer to fit her overall concept.

The piece is now in a private garden in Sussex, England.
