Nice! :D it's a simple but pretty piece!, great job! :D

Nice project. I can see needing the holes around the edge if the water were overflowing the top container, but then you'd need a trough around the edge of the bottom container. What are the holes for in your design?

actually its for to water to go on a cycle and you use it to increase the water level.

Nice, but not quite a fountain :D

I recently saw something where water was swirled inside a glass tube until it reached the upper lid and then flowed down the side. Then you have like a free standing vortex. I guess the water is pumped up again and fed in a way to create the whirlpool.

opps thankx for the comment

I love vortex's and could watch them all day. Up here ours naturally go clockwise viewed from the top and I think a lot more thought should be put into enhancing nature than fighting it. Your project is a great way to contemplate what happens in nature and observe a phenomonone.
