For the circular pool in the garden of the Fonthill Estate in Wiltshire I made a new version of my 'Tavola' series, where vessels are filled to a precisely levelled brim. Previous versions have been square or rectangular, with a spout on each corner. Here the existing circular pool called for a hexagonal shape with six spouts.
The expanse of water at the top is still and reflective. The spouts have been modelled so that the water falls in smooth arcs that hold together. Deflector cups placed under the falling water give some animation to the pool surface.
Materials: bronze and stainless steel
