Incredible water-themed artworks and fountains around the world

There are incredible water-themed artworks and fountains around the world. Artists create gorgeous water formations and geometry to form these amazing, almost magical, fluid sculptures, spectacular water shapes, and manipulations. 

I have collected some nice samples for You here:

 

William Pye is an English sculptor. Since the 1980s, water has become an integral element of most of his work. He is inspired by the extraordinary qualities of water and fascinated by the natural laws of hydrostatics and how these can be manipulated.

Waterhead water sculpture fountain stands in Joure, Netherland in a small lake in a new district of the city. A few graceful lines of solid steel form a large face in the open space of the landscape. The six-meter-high sculpture rises up from the water and the powerful lines of Corten steel, stand out against the cloudy sky.

This fountain looks like a boat, one that is caught in a soaking surge of water, but it is in fact a cleverly designed fountain sprinkling water out of its man-made pores. Located at Playa de la Malvarrosa in Valencia, Spain and known simply as Water Boat Fountain. It creates the illusion of both the hull and the sail of a boat with liquid jets. One is left baffled by its simple design mimicking the appearance of a sailboat with nothing more than a few rods spraying fine streams of water.

Bottle of Notes was commissioned by Middlesbrough Borough Council, and the ingredient of the site which most captured Oldenburg's imagination was the history of Captain Cook, born in Middlesbrough. The city again provided the inspiration for the medium, the tempered-steel used in the sculpture echoing Middlesbrough's industrial heritage and continuing the legacy of the town's Ironmasters. In 1993, before the National Lottery, and in the wake of huge social and industrial change, the commissioning of Claes Oldenberg and Coosje van Bruggen to produce the 'Bottle of Notes' marked a confident and ambitious new direction for visual arts commissions in the North of England. Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen's monumental sculpture Bottle of Notes, which soars nearly thirty-five feet above the city of Middlesbrough, tilted at an angle almost as startling as the Tower of Pisa, is the first public sculpture in the United Kingdom by these two internationally renowned artists. www.oldenburgvanbruggen.com/largescaleprojects/bottleofnotes

John Dahlsen is a contemporary environmental artist. He created a bottle sculpture with the romantic and genuine notion that somewhere there is an old pair of their thongs that they lost on the beach! 'Absolut Dahlsen' was unveiled at the opening of the '2004 Sculpture By The Sea' exhibition on the Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk in Sydney, Australia. www.johndahlsen.com/commissions

There’s a fountain in Budapest, that looks like an open book located in Egyetem Square, in front of the Eötvös Loránd University of Sciences. It was built in 2012 and almost identical to the formerly built book fountain in Istanbul. Every few seconds a sheet of water blasts forth from the book’s spine, arcing from one side to the other, creating the illusion that an invisible force is turning the pages of this marble tome. It’s an “open book fountain” that looks like a giant tome having its liquid pages read by some invisible, voracious reader. The implicit mission of it to keep the beauty of physical books present in people’s minds. There are six other book-shaped fountains around the World at this time.
