Apex Eleusis

A watersculpture in copper and stainless steel. Water cascades gently down a series of suspended bowls. Natural rhythms develop in the flow of the water and sunlight and wind play an integral role to create an ever-changing celebration of light and water.

The version pictured here, for a small courtyard garden, measures 1.20 m , to the apex, but the concept can easily be scaled up or down to suit a specific location.

Here the reservoir, pump and filter are buried beneath a thin layer of gravel. A trapdoor makes maintenance simple. This arrangement ensures that the pump is completely silent. A hierarchy of sound from high to low as the water trickles from small to large bowls is an important element to this sculpture.
