Artist's description:

Reflections of the Cathedral interior from the font.

The Salisbury font was designed by the renowned British water sculptor William Pye. It was installed in September 2008 and dedicated by the Archbishop of Canterbury during the celebration of the 750th anniversary of the consecration of the Cathedral.

Cruciform in shape, the font has a 3-metre span to allow total immersion baptism. It is a green patinated bronze vessel with a Purbeck Freestone plinth and brown patinated bronze grating. Water is the predominant feature, and here two contrasting aspects of water are woven seamlessly together. There is stillness expressed in the smooth surface which reflects and extends the surrounding architecture, while the flow and movement of water passing through spouts at each of the four corners and disappearing through a bronze grating set into the floor expresses its essential life giving properties.
