Humphrey Bowden is a designer and maker of unusual sculptural fountains, mainly based on slender plant and tree shapes. These allow water flow to be carefully controlled, to provide subtle visual impact and sound.

All designs are original and each fountain is made individually for the client, so as to interpret his or her ideas. Fountains or other sculpture can be commissioned for any location, from a pond in a private garden to a large public space.

His work has been extensively covered in national and international media.

Early fountain designs were commissioned for show gardens at the Hampton Court and Chelsea Flower shows and this has continued. Other commissions built up rapidly in the UK, mainly for private gardens, but also for public and commercial spaces. His work has been comissioned for countries in Europe, North America, the Far East and Africa

He works mainly in copper, because it can be formed to make delicate and intricate shapes, which are strong. It can also be heated to produce warm red/brown oxide colours, which eventually weather to an attractive grey green patina.

Humphrey Bowden originally trained as a research scientist at Cambridge and spent several years designing and developing new products in industry. He left in 1990 to work for himself. He had always had a strong interest in painting and sculpture and was excited by the idea of making fountains in organic shapes, because they have such an affinity with water.

Fountains have been exhibited in medal winning show gardens at Chelsea and Hampton Court for a number of years, and there have been many commissions in the UK and abroad.
