Wall Drinking Fountain

The pattern for the back plate behind the tap is a carved scallop shaped pattern, hand carved in yellow pine and carefully fitted in order for the new casting to fit perfectly into the space left. The original casting of the back plate had been lost, so an old photograph of the fountain meant that we could accurately match the design.

For the bowl pattern a section of the original bowl was used to make a fibreglass mould. Then, using polyurethane resin, multiples were cast and fitted together to make the complete bowl. A back was added along with lugs for fixing the casting into the wall, and the patterns painted with red patterncoat.
