A simple but striking copper fountain, and water simply bubbles spring-like from its centre in a single jet. A design is by the Zantedeschia aethiopica.
As with all of our copper fountains, the Arum fountain comes complete with a stone base. It can be sat either on a plinth in a pond, or placed on top of a pebble pool.
Connection of the pump is from underneath, so all pipes and fittings can be discreetly concealed.
Stone base: 30x30cm
Flow rate required: 200-300 litres per hour (at 20cm head height)
Pump recommendation 1000 litres per hour
Connection: 12mm hose on underside of base
Gary has honed his skills have over many years, to produce some remarkably beautiful pieces of work, reflecting the natural plant forms that have been his inspiration.
In a modest workshop in East Yorkshire, England, Gary has been producing his range of Copper fountains since 1999. He has remained steadfast in his resolve to produce very high quality pieces, with the best materials and from original designs.
Through a process of annealing and hammering, very lifelike forms can be made from a plain sheet of copper plate. Where appropriate, all key joints are made using a specialist, hard solder, which makes a union stronger than the material itself. This enables the creation of a piece of sculpture, which may look light and fragile, but is in fact extremely resilient.
The copper is intentionally left in its natural state, to benefit from the constant changing patinas, building up over many decades. This process allows the fountain to blend perfectly into a garden, integrating, without dominating.
