Allison Armour was born in Paris and raised in New York, where she attended the Parsons School of Design, before coming to London to study at the Architectural Association. It was here that her love of gardens, outdoor sculptures and water began to develop. Then, in 1999, “I was happily doing up my present house and couldn’t find a water feature I liked for my own garden – so I decided to make one myself.” Since then, she has designed stainless steel fountains, water features, mobiles and sculptures, obelisks, pergolas and even acrylic rowing boats – “a great favourite with children, since they can watch the fish” – and completed large scale corporate commissions across the world. Her first piece, Aquasphere, was a water filled acrylic globe shimmering in the middle of a water-filled circular dish. ”It had a wonderful way of reflecting the world upside down and scattering rainbows all over the walls of the house. Friends loved it, so I took some photographs and sent them to a magazine.” At the time, there were little or no water features using acrylic and stainless steel, so Allison’s work was instantly thrown into the limelight, where it has constantly remained.

Allison was great to work with from the first phone call. She provides a very personal service and is on hand to deal with any questions. The product speaks for itself and has provided so much happiness for family and friends. Maintenance is straightforward, and I emailed/called a couple of times for some tips and got a quick response.

I bought 1 of Allison's magical water features 5 years ago and it is as mesmerizing as the first day I bought it. It is the focal point of my garden and it delights me with it's constantly changing "moods." It sparkles with diamonds in the sun, goes orange with the sunset and silver in the moonlight. I am happy to recommend it to anyone.

I am often asked, “What do customers do with your spheres?” One interesting and elegant application is the use of spheres as fountains. In our opinion, no one does this better than the artist, Allison Armour. By combining clear acrylic spheres with water, stainless steel and light, Allison’s sculptures are inviting, elegant, beautiful and relaxing. California Quality Plastics has been assisting Allison by providing some of the spheres and support structures required for both her standard Aqualens fountains and several giant sized fountains. If you would like to know more about Allison’s sculptures, please visit her website at www.sphere-fountain.com Allison is a pleasure to work with!

Allison is an exceptionally talented sculptor. I've come to know her work in Santa Barbara but Allison works all over the world. She fabricates the most striking forms usually made from stainless steel, clear acrylic and sometimes uses a water element. Her sculptures are intended to be placed in gardens, private or urban and are always a striking contrast to the landscape and compliment the architectural forms brilliantly. I am a big fan!
