This is a simple yet striking copper water feature, and as its name implies, water simply bubbles spring-like from its centre.
Recently re-designed to incorporate 3 additional leaves.
The sound generated both by the water and by the copper leaves gently resonating is almost musical.
The Water Lily Copper Fountain, what could be more appropriate? A flower (22cm in diameter) sits in the midst of five lily pads.
The leaves of the Hosta have been carefully reproduced with beautiful deep veins, to make this lovely copper water feature something really special.
Six leaves, all with water fed to them. making this a very busy fountain with multiple streams of water falling from each leaf.
The Fig Leaf copper fountain consists of 3 hand-beaten copper leaves, the shape taken from the Brown Turkey Fig Tree.
Stylised and reminiscent of the beautiful plant we so often find climbing in our gardens. The 'Morning Glory' copper fountain cascades water from flower to flower. Acting as elegant bowls, the water wells inside the blooms, spilling from one flower to the next
Gary Pickles has been working with copper for many years now and has turned his skill to produce a range of beautiful copper fountains & water features, pieces of sculpture and decorative items for the garden. Pieces have been displayed at many exhibitions and public gardens around the country. Examples of bespoke pieces, can be seen on our Gallery page. In addition to the selection featured on this page, I can also work to your own design and help you create something quite unique in your garden.
Copper is the perfect medium, for garden sculpture and fountains. Through various processes of annealing and hammering,this malleable metal, can be made into endless shapes and forms. From flat sheet-copper, we can create flowers and leaves of every description to make the perfect fountain for your garden. As regards maintenance, quite simply it isn't necessary. Copper will slowly and continually change over many decades, building up a patina of colours, from dark browns, to VerdiGris greens. No cleaning is ever required and the sculpture can stand up to all weathers for many, many years.
