After making sculptures out of tube for several years, it occurred to me that I could pump water, etc. through the them.

This was my first piece made from stainless steel. I TIG welded all of the joints, and turned the nozzles in brass. I tried 8 pumps before I found one with the right balance of head/pressure, and flow!
