New garden near ROHM to house iconic water sculpture
The 40ft water sculpture is surrounded by a stunning garden and will boast of water jets forming different patterns during day and night
The new garden adjacent to the Royal Opera House Muscat (ROHM) will house an iconic water sculpture, designed and sculpted by a leading British artist.
The 40ft creation is an abstract structure, sculpted by Giles Rayner, a leading player in the world of water sculpture. His unique designs can be seen in a number of gardens and public spaces across the UK, and at a number of international locations.
According to the designers, the geometrical structure is inspired by ROHM, which in turn is influenced by the Islamic architecture. The 40ft water sculpture will sit in a pool 60m wide surrounded by a stunning garden and will boast of water jets forming different patterns during day and night.
Rayner specialises in using copper, stainless steel and bronze, often at a large scale, to create imaginative and highly individual designs, which combines energy and intrigue. The use of moving water empowers each design with real life, achieving sometimes a sense of the dramatic, sometimes the more peaceful.
Rayner’s skill in working with individual and frequently historic settings, ensures that each sculpture is a timeless element of its architectural landscape or natural surroundings, a sensitivity which he regards as a vital endeavour for each project.
