Botanic Gardens, sensory fountain

This sensory fountain is another feature of the Herb Garden in the Botanic Gardens. This spherical fountain was designed to be touched, seen and heard with a steady trickle of water flowing over it, on approach. It was designed by Victorian artist Tim Jones and made by Dave Mune at the Art Foundry in Victoria. The fountain is surrounded by a bronze ring of herbs drawn by Gardens’ illustrator Marion Westmacott.


  1. What an unusual fountain! It looks very inviting and I like the color.

  2. I instantly thought of a potter at her wheel creating a spherical object with water flowing to assist the moulding process.

  3. You have a lot of interesting photos on your blog! Love those from the Botanic garden!

    And thanks for visiting me! Didn't find any SWF post, but I am a little late taking the tour! :)

  4. Wow! Now that is an interesting fountain! I would really like to get a mounted wall fountain version of this for my patio.

  5. Thanks Valkyrien. I actually gave Skywatch a miss this week because it clashed with the other theme day but I have a good one ready for this Friday.


Thanks for visiting my blog. Please leave me a message. Jim.
