From an original design by Gary Pickles
The hand beaten copper leaves gradually increase in size from the top down. This spectacular tree diverts the water into countless streams to make an almost musical sound, as hundreds of water droplets strike the leaves below.
Complete with a heavy stone base, enabling it to sit in a pond, or pebble pool.
Connection of the pump is from below the base, so all pipes and fittings can be discreetly concealed.

Gary has been producing his range of copper fountains in a modest workshop in East Yorkshire, England, since 1999. He produces high quality pieces from the best materials and all from original designs.
Through various processes 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 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 blend perfectly into a garden.
