Faience Fountain Trees

By pamelajean
These sculptured columns can be found in the external area of Festival Place, BasingstokeÂ’s vibrant shopping and leisure centre.
Created by artist Richard Perry, they are made from green floral glazed tiles (faience) and are actually fountains. Water cascades over the ceramic tiled relief. What a pity they werenÂ’t working when I was there!

4 images, getting closer with each one.

Thanks to all who took the time to look, vote, award and comment on my Pink Lacecap Hydrangea.

I love the way this lends itself to abstract interpretation. V3 has the effect of an art filter.
