Description

Domed Water Bowls

Introduce the mercurial qualities of water.

These water bowls feature polished metal domes that appear to float inside of concrete vessels. Water flows up through the centre of each dome to run over the reflective surface of the hand-spun metal and then drop off the edges into the surrounding water creating sound. Like our concrete pieces, each metal dome is handmade and unique. The variations, inconsistencies and undulations characteristic of hand-spun metal create the beautiful water movement and reflections that define these water features. Hemispherical concrete bowls provide a solid aesthetic counterpoint to the shine of the domes and the fluidity of the water while functioning as impermeable containers. Every dome is attached to a support which holds it securely inside of it’s concrete vessel. Appropriate for use indoors or out for residential and commercial installation.

The three dome sizes each have a different character as the curvature of the metal domes increases with their diameter.

  • The 660mm (26) Dome has a modest curve that reads almost flat, reflecting its surroundings on its polished surface to create a pool like effect.
  • With it’s wider surface the 914mm (36) Dome  has a soft curve that bends and reflects light, arcing above the rim of the concrete bowl.
  • As the largest dome the 1219mm (48) is generous and bold with a pronounced, rounded contour.

Configurations

  • Self contained:These water features allow you to incorporate the experience of water into a setting which does not have an existing water source. This type of configuration holds and circulates all of its own water and requires only a standard electrical connection for the internal pump. Once you place your water bowl,  assemble it and add the required amount of water you simply plug it in and enjoy it.
  • Fully Integrated models: Our water features can be configured to connect into an external water source to become part of a larger system. Integrated water features rely on an external water source, pump and drainage system and can be used in a variety of ways. Call us to discuss your project.
  • Partially integrated – our dome water features can also be used in conjunction with an onsite/existing catch basin, pool or pond to create a self contained system that holds and circulates all of it’s own water.

Dome Testimonials

Solus dome water feature fountainOur Solus Dome water feature, found at the Chelsea Flower Show and now positioned on the rear terrace, has a wonderful tinkling echo and can be heard across the entire lenght of the house when the double bifold doors are open, also in the bedrooms above. Its simple but tasteful design could fit anywhere, inside or out. We are delighted with it.

Outstanding Service

Janet Bailey

Modern, minimalist firebowls made exceptionally well. I would not hesitate to buy a fire bowl from Solus again. The people there were very helpful and so easy to work with. the bowls themselves are simply beautiful.

Jennie Frisbie

Love our new firepit Once I saw our firepit onine I was pretty obsessed. We got the elevated halo 36. It’s just so pretty. Solus was lovely to deal with as well. It was easy to order and the rep spent a lot of time on the phone with me helping to pick out the color. the firepit shipped out on time and got here in perfect shape. We are very happy with our purchase.

Chris Overall 2018

Solus were recommended to us for the best open fire pits. Though expensive, they certainly are [the best] and we totally love it. The finis on the concrete is like looking at an Apple product…fine finish, exacting tolerances and well made. The packing was perfect to preserve the integrity of the product, the unpacking was easy and the install went without problems. The service and quotation process was smooth and professional and very helpful. All staff at sit and the manager were polite and professional and very helpful. I totally recommend this product and firm to deal with.

Solus provided unprompted updates re delivery and have helped with every piece of information that we have ever requested. their customer services is second to none. The end result is a beautiful water feature that is a centre piece in our garden, perfect to watch and lovely to hear.
