LA-based artist and designer Lily Clark draws her inspiration from the landscapes of California. Marrying the delicate flow of water with the enduring strength of basalt, crafting fountains that resonate with the state's natural beauty.
Clark's keen observations capturing the nuances of nature, from the intricate patterns of the Walker Lane Fault to the polished beach cobbles of La Paz, Baja, influence the lines, smooth surfaces and geometric shapes that distinguish her signature fountains. Her designs are a tribute to nature's hydro artistry, such as spiraling streams, and they skillfully manipulate the sound and movement of flowing water into elegant architectural forms.
In her approach, Clark prioritizes precision, a reflection of her passion for engineering. She meticulously drafts her designs in granite, concrete and ceramic, shaping slabs of clay to match each template before seamlessly joining the pieces. The surfaces remain unglazed, offering a textured contrast to the glossy water.
