With a wonderfully industrial edginess, this Long Corten Steel Water Feature adds a sophisticated, modern vibe to a contemporary garden space. The feature comprises a raised, flat, steel bed, which is totally immersed in water, enhancing the beautiful tones of the weathered steel underneath. Along the centre of this bed, three gurgling spouts of water bubble up and as they drop, form ripples of three concentric circles in the pool. The water from the pool laps over the edge of the bed and is recycled up through the spouts by a silent pump and is illuminated by a LED lights.
Not only is the visual effect relaxing, especially if caught in dappled sunlight, but the noise created by the water is slightly exaggerated by the steel structure and the sound becomes wonderfully relaxing and hypnotic.
Corten steel was developed in the US in the 1930s as an industrial process, valued because the steel alloy reacted to exposure to the weather in a controlled way, which mitigated the need for paint. Over time, Corten builds up a stable and protective, rust-like layer of oxide and for this reason it is also known as weathering steel. It is the very beauty of this burnt orange patina that has made it so popular as a medium for sculpture.
Due to the contained design of this feature, it can be used as part of an interior design, as well as in the garden.
