Humphrey Bowden is a designer and maker of unusual sculptural fountains, mainly based on slender plant and tree shapes. These allow water flow to be carefully controlled, to give beautiful shape to the fountain and provide subtle sounds.

His work has been extensively covered in national and international media. All designs are original and each fountain is made individually for the client, so as to interpret his or her ideas. Fountains or other sculpture can be commissioned for any location, from a pond in a private garden to a corporate atrium or large public space. A number of fountains have been exhibited  at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show for many years.

The fountains are hand beaten from pure copper and silver brazed together, to be permanently resistant to the elements. The warm gold and reddish colours formed naturally when the copper is heated gradually weather to take on the characteristic grey-green patina.
