William Pye Water Scupture


Octogonal water sculpture, private commission

The general symmetry of the garden has guided the concept for this water sculpture, the octogonal area at the intersection of two paths providing the site and suggesting the shape.

The sculpture is almost symmetrical, but not quite, for a quarter section of the octagonal stone plinth is raised to a level higher than the rest. On the higher level is set a bronze dish which spills water over a quadrant-shaped lip into the circular pool set within the stone plinth.

Length 3.4m, height 0.8m.
