Trees of Tranquility sculpture fountains are individually designed and created by our artist/sculptor Mehrdad Tafreshi and hand made in our workshop, situated in a tranquil location in the midst of deep woodlands in Surrey. Each unique copper tree sculpture – willow, oak, maple, beech and many more – is constructed primarily from copper and incorporates a water feature, creating a shimmering, gentle fountain. The mesmerizing effect of the beautifully constructed framework of trunk, branches and delicate twigs, each shaped, textured and detailed to reflect the intricate effects of natural bark, with individually cut and shaped leaves is complimented by the soothing sound of the water cascading through the sculpture.
An award-winning artist, Mehrdad also works in hand blown glass, combining this with copper stems and elegant elongated leaves, to create exotic groupings of primrose, iris, lily, sunflower blooms and buds in colours varying from deep, vibrant purples, reds and orange to gentle pastel yellows, blues and green. His sculptures and tree water features can vary in height and expanse from an intricate glass and copper arrangement or bonsai of approx. one metre high to copper tree fountains of over 18 metres with a canopy five metres wide.
A water feature or sculpture commissioned from us for your garden or interior space will result in a truly individual work of art, tailored to your exact location and environment. Quist will handle formulating and finalising the brief to your exact requirements, producing clear design documentation, surveying and costing all elements of the works and of course, the delivery, installation and maintenance of your unique copper water sculpture – a true work of art.
Mehrdad has for many years used the Chelsea Flower Show to unveil his stunning creations to potential clients, who include landscape gardeners, designers of inside/outside spaces and lovers of imaginative gardening as well as corporate clients.
The Guardian’s Michael Billington visited Chelsea and wrote that: “Mehrdad Tafreshi’s sculpted copper tree stands in the middle of a pool and seems to bleed tears. Clearly the gap between the Royal Horticultural Society and the Royal National Theatre is narrowing all the time.”
