Dolphin Fountain

After making sculptures out of tube for several years, it occurred to me that I could pump water, etc. through the them. These images show the progression from a sculpture in Copper wire, to successively more complex prototypes in Copper and stainless steel tube, and finally some renderings of what half-size and full-size fountains might look like.

I got a start on welding the 1/2-scale dolphin fountain from 5/8 inch stainless tube. The 3d stuff is many times as difficult as this (which all lies in one plane), and so I haven't yet gotten to it.
