A stunning alternative to a firepit the sculptural water feature has been designed to retain the same iconic features of our popular firepits with an alternative focus. A large sandstone sphere sits inside a larger carved steel sphere. Water slowly bubbles from the top of the stone and flows around the ball. The gentle sound trickling water is perfect addition to any garden. The sound of water slowly trickling over the stone ball is mesmerising, whilst subtle LED lights at the top illuminate the water as it flows.
The steel sphere can also be lifted off and placed on an alternative base to work as a firepit in another location if required. Because of the way the steel sphere fits over the water feature the piece can be made in a wide range of designs and is available with a 650mm or 800mm steel sphere.
Developed as a brand new piece for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019 this is already proving to be a hit!
Note that we think the leaf design is perfect for a water feature, but we can make almost any of our designs into a water feature if you wish. Please get in contact to discuss or add comments at the checkout. Note that the final picture shows the water feature on top of the optional planter base.
All of our Firepits are crated by hand, resulting in a unique piece each and every time.
Each Fireball starts life as two hemispheres of 6mm steel. The two hemispheres are then welded together and cleaned to remove any oil or debris from the construction.
Designs are hand drawn on the balls by our artist. Standard balls follow one of our design themes, pulling in elements to fulfil the brief. Bespoke balls are created following a customer consultation to capture specific requirements for that ball. Each drawing develops at its own pace and creates a life of its own. The ball is then cut entirely by hand using a plasma cutter. The cutting process inevitably results in additions to the drawing, as the look of each individual ball springs to life.
The finished balls can be painted with a heat proof paint or they can be left to weather and develop a rust patina naturally. If left in their natural finish it will take many decades for a ball to rust away, and as the rust develops they look very organic in an appealing industrial way. A beautiful addition to any garden.
Once a ball is finished our team carefully prepare the ball for dispatch, ready to create a lifetime of memories in its new home.
My name is Andy Gage, I am a 34 year old farmer from Haverhill, Suffolk. My wife and I have a mixed farm with Poultry, Horses and Cropping. I took over the farm when I was 21 and have been looking for new things to do on the farm ever since.
I started making Fireballs in 2013 as a diversification to keep me busy during our slow periods on the farm. I was inspired by the variety of Firepits available on the market and I felt that I would enjoy producing individual, artistic Fireballs. I really enjoy the whole process from discussing ideas and inspirations with clients for their Fireball, and then turning their ideas into reality.
The business is growing rapidly, but our attention to detail and quality on behalf of our clients will be at the forefront of our business as we go forward creating unique, individual art works.
