Big Sprout gestures the pause and transition of early spring. Twisting torso, arm, and branch together hover for a moment of reflection, just above the water, inward to earth.  The coiled sprout’s implied energy guides our imagination forward, helping us anticipate the continuing sprouting, outward and upward, further towards the heavens.

Bevuta Primavera (Spring Drink) is a proposed fountain, composing Big Sprout (carved from statuary white Cervaiole marble) with an elliptical-shaped table (carved from Pietra del Cardosa) and a percolating font at one of two foci set just below "the drink".

The siting of Bevuta Primavera is in the entrance garden of the Da Filie Restaurant and Hotel in Querceta, Italy. The fountain greets travelers and signals that hospitality and refreshment is at hand.
