Fountain in which, when water is poured into its top, feeds into the mouth of three lions and weeps through the eye of one other. On wheels, it is immemorial; able to move, spin and waltz. It awaits an encounter, a congregation; the meeting of lovers, the splashing of children, the making of wishes.
Made in the spirit of public fountains, that might rest in a public square rather than a private garden. Its status as ‘public’ artefact rests on allowing audiences to interact with it; to pour water, to splash, to touch and move it.
