The Charybdis Fountain

The Charybdis Fountain was created by sculptor William Pye for the Seaham Hotel in Northern England. Named for a mythical whirlpool, the fountain is a cylinder of transparent acrylic which appears to totally blend in with the actual water, creating the effect of a solid block of liquid rising from the ground. In the center of the fountain, the large air vortex rises and falls every fifteen minutes.
