“There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You never quite know where they’ll take you.”

Beatrix Potter is one of the most beloved children's writers of the modern era, and her hugely popular books have been capturing the imagination of readers of all ages since the early-1900s.

A writer, illustrator, natural scientist and conservationist; she has created some of classic literature’s most memorable characters. Taking inspiration from the landscape and wildlife of the Lake District and the Scottish Highlands, she is best known for her twenty-three children’s tales, including The Tale of Peter Rabbit, The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck, and The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin.

So many of the sculptures, water features, and miniatures from the Robert James Workshop collection are inspired by the English writer’s hand-drawn illustrations and rich, enduring stories—and the everlasting charm of her work can be found in the handmade bronze creations you find here today.

From the pages of Beatrix Potter’s famous books, to your garden, each character embodying a sense of enchantment and magic.


What our customers have to say

Hello over there in England

I bought my Christopher Robin water feature 10 years ago after visiting your stand at the Chelsea Flower Show. He was delivered safely and securely all the way to Perth in Western Australia. Still working perfectly and making me smile every day. He sits on a stand outside my bathroom window where I can see him from the inside as well.

Thankyou - I love him.

How often should you change the water in a bronze water feature?

We’d recommend changing the water in your bronze water feature at least once a month. As a general rule: the cleaner the water, the slower the spread of algae.

Should a bronze water feature be left on all the time?

For the purposes of saving energy, consider using a timer or switching off your bronze garden water feature when it’s not in use or at night time, particularly if you’re going to be away for an extended period.

Can you leave a bronze water feature out in winter?

Any metal garden water feature will require particular care during winter and it’s vital they are drained-off properly before a frost sets in. Any water that’s left in the pipes will freeze, expand, and even cause the pipes to burst. This may also result in the castings failing.

How often should bronze water fountains be cleaned?

Your garden water feature should be cleaned once a month or every couple of months, depending on the size.

Will the water make the bronze water feature rust?

No, as bronze contains little or no iron, it does not rust. 

Where should a water feature be placed?

A bronze water feature is incredibly robust, which offers plenty of flexibility when it comes to placement as you’re not limited by the risk of potential damage. 

Before deciding where to install your water feature, in practical distance from a mains water supply, think about where you’re likely to get the most visual pleasure from your piece. In viewing distance from a summer house or a large bay window, perhaps, so you can enjoy your water feature whilst indoors. Or make your water feature the centrepiece of a patio or decking area, or somewhere where it can be seen from as many vantage points in your garden as possible.

If you have any doubts or questions, please contact us for advice and if you find that you require our installation service, please get in touch with James to discuss your options.
