William Pye Water Scupture

Brimming Bowl

Surface tension maintains a flat disc of apparently still water at a level that is slightly higher than the rim of the bronze container, forming a meniscus. Water enters the bottom of the vessel and as it rises all turbulence disappears to give an effect of total stillness, despite the fact that some 30 gallons per minute are slipping down the throat of a "belmouth" weir in the centre.
