Whirlpool Sculpture, Alnwick Gardens

by Ed OKeeffe in ,

Whirlpool Sculpture, Alnwick Gardens There is an area of Alnwick Gardens which has about half a dozen very interesting and unique sculptures based on using and showing water. The one pictured above is probably my favourite to watch and as such was the most difficult to photograph. I am not sure how the whirlpool was created but the water started off low in this large bowl (probably 10 feet across), then kept rising up the sides slowly. Eventually the water came over the sides of the round, chrome container and flowed peacefully down the outside of the sculpture. At this point it hardly looked like water at all and more like a thick gel like liquid turning slowly around the bowl.
