Quenching Cup

The sculpture is a fountain in the abstract form of a hand holding a cup. Water flows from the cup into a square pool below. The fingers of the hand and the cup are made of painted steel. The cup is shaped like a folded paper cup; wider at the top and pointed at the base. Water is pumped into a shallow basin at the top and pours out of one corner into a concrete pool below. The pool is 2 feet deep and 8 feet square.
