Humphrey Bowden is a designer and maker of unusual sculptural courtyard fountains, mainly based on slender plant and tree shapes. They are hand made in copper and each part is beaten to shape, before being brazed together to form a permanent sculpture.
These fountains are specially designed to fit into the courtyard, so that the intimate space is complemented by the shape of the fountain. They reflect permanent planting scheme and the hard landscaping. It is possible also to control the sound of the water to provide just the right atmosphere in the courtyard, gentle and melodious, rather than an insistant sound that would be irritating. all these fountains are designed to run continuously, to maintain the peaceful feeling of the courtyard.
Many of these courtyard fountains have been written up in prestigious garden magazines and other national and international media. Each design is original and each fountain is made individually for your courtyard, and to interpret your ideas.
You can commission a fountains or other sculpture fo any location, from a pond in a private garden to a corporate atrium or large public space. A number of fountains are exhibited annually at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.
