Hand-forged arum lily water spouts for the silver medal winning QVC Garden
Adam Frost wanted water to pour into the garden's two rills to provide both sound and movement. To do the garden justice, however, he wanted something more than just a set of six drain pipes, so set Anwick Forge the task of designing and producing something suitable.
Our design based on a hand-forged arum lily in polished and lacquered forged mild steel hit the spot exactly. The lilies our blacksmiths produced had a wide mouth and curved lip, meaning a generous and precise flow of water, and the floral reference suited the garden perfectly, thus making the piece an ideal combination of form and function.
