William Pye Water Scupture


Vesqua is the latest in my series of 'Brimming Bowl' water sculptures.  Surface tension maintains a flat disc of apparently still water at a level that is perceptibly higher than the rim of its bronze container.  A significant flow of water enters the vessel and as this rises turbulence disappears to give an effect of stillness, despite the fact that some 135 litres of water per minute are slipping down the throat of a square internal weir that draws water down to a reservoir below.
