William Pye Water Scupture


Like many of my pieces this evolved as a synthesis of landscape and geometry. Here the shape derives from the convergence of two cones and suggests a mountainscape of ridge, escarpment and lake. One cone is inverted with its apex somewhat below a perceived ground level, while the base of the other is at ground level. When the two cones converge the crescent shape that results is made up of the concave surface of the inverted cone and the convex surface of its partner.The challenge I set myself was to cover all surfaces evenly from water emerging through a narrow slit along the sloping ridge.
