Grotto Mask Water Feature
A stately, Classically-designed and proportioned niche water feature, depicted here with rusticated arch, nature-imitating grotto stone finish and vermiculated detailing, makes a magnificent focal point to any garden but works especially well for formal, Italianate gardens.
Here, the niche is set off perfectly with a masked shell water feature depicting a river god flanked by two porpoises. The single spout falls into a rock pool with a delightful crab detail.
The given proportions exploit the design's pendentive curve to produce a marked amplification of sound within the niche. This elusive and historic stonemasonry design trick makes this water feature even more of a talking point.
