Charybdis was created by the water sculptor William Pye for the luxury Seaham Hotel and Spa, near Sunderland in Northern England. Named after the mythical whirlpool, the fountain is enclosed in a cylinder of transparent acrylic, which appears to fuse with the water itself, giving the impression of a solid block of liquid rising out of the ground. In the center of the fountain, a large air-core vortex rises and falls every fifteen minutes.
