Aqualens Sphere Fountains

Pictured is the Aqualens by Allison Armour, whose work combines modern materials with classic geometrical shapes to add magic to gardens and other spaces. Allison also caters to large-scale projects for corporate work, and special commissions for interiors or exteriors. The sculptures can be made any size and customized in a variety of ways.

Aqualens Sphere Fountain

Allison’s most popular water feature was designed in 1999, as the centrepiece of a show garden at the 2000 Chelsea Flower Show , where she won a silver medal on her debut for “Garden of Reflections” (also incorporating more of her garden artwork). The fountain is based on a 2 foot (60cm) diameter acrylic sphere, filled and overflowing with water from a concealed pump. AquaLens sets this on a circular stainless steel platform, which in turn is set in a 5 foot (1.5m) diameter stainless steel contact-lens dish pool. The pool can be dug into a lawn, or set on a terrace or other firm level surface (the pool has a fitted collar so it sits level). We can create the Aqualens dish and sphere in any size.

Operation and maintenance are simple: The Aqualens comes fully assembled, just fill with water and plug in the lead for the electric pump. Options available include a fitted internal light, and a different size of dish. Click here to view the installation and maintenance information.

The dishes on the aqualens may have minor imperfections due to the nature of the spinning process.
