Domed Water Bowls

RHS Chelsea Garden Product of the Year finalist in 2016 and 2017

Introduce the mercurial qualities of water.

These water bowls feature polished metal domes that appear to float inside of concrete vessels. Water flows up through the center of each dome to run over the reflective surface of the hand-spun metal and then drop off the edges into the surrounding water creating sound. Like our concrete pieces, each metal dome is handmade and unique. The variations, inconsistencies and undulations characteristic of hand-spun metal create the beautiful water movement and reflections that define these water features. Hemispherical concrete bowls provide a solid aesthetic counterpoint to the shine of the domes and the fluidity of the water while functioning as impermeable containers. Every dome is attached to a support which holds it securely inside of it’s concrete vessel. Appropriate for use indoors or out for residential and commercial installation.

The three dome sizes each have a different character as the curvature of the metal domes increases with their diameter.

  • The 26” (660mm) Dome has a modest curve that reads almost flat, reflecting its surroundings on its polished surface to create a pool like effect.
  • With it’s wider surface the 36” (914mm) Dome  has a soft curve that bends and reflects light, arcing above the rim of the concrete bowl.
  • As the largest dome the 48” (1219mm) is generous and bold with a pronounced, rounded contour.
