Item details

A work commissioned by a client in the Yarra Valley, Victoria, as a driveway entrance water feature. Inspired by the client's late husbands favourite tree, the Eucalyptus 'Silver Princess' and not wanting to take away from the natural surroundings.
The 66 delicate copper water fed leaves are individually handcrafted, gently weeping over the locally sourced river stones where the water just seemingly disappears.
All supported by the intertwining trunk that sits within local wetland grasses and rushes. The tree will slowly gain a stunning greeny/blue patina over the years, adding another element to this piece
