HYPERTUFA PROJECT-GRAPELEAF FOUNTAIN
Brenda and her husband grow grapes for Kansas vintners. She has participated in several Hypertufa Studios and made lots of cool stuff. Her latest piece is this stunning grape and leaf fountain. She used a large and small wedge form for the base and upper fountain piece. Then she cast real grape leaves and sculpted the bunches of grapes from concrete as ornaments. The pump in the bottom, pumps water up into the upper unit where it trickles out of a hole among the grapes on each of the four sides. Awesome!
