Hand-beaten copper leaves increasing in size, make up this impressive copper tree sculpture.
Supplied complete with a large, stone slab base, heavy enough to prevent it from blowing over in high winds.
This is a very large and spectacular water feature, which requires a pond of sufficient area to accommodate it. We recommend an area of approximately 3 metres across to fully contain the water.
Minimum pump recommended: 2000 litres per hour
Pipe Connection: 25mm (1 inch)
Pond size: 3m diameter
Base: 60 x 60cm
Coppersmith & Artist Gary Pickles, has been producing his range of Copper Fountains in a modest workshop in East Yorkshire, England, since 1999.
Through a process of annealing and hammering, very lifelike forms can be made from pure coper. 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 incredibly strong.
The copper is left in its natural state, to benefit from the constant changing patinas, which build up over many years. This process allows the fountain to age beautifully, without the need for maintenance.
