The 5,4m tall ceramic artwork is called Fons Vitae, meaning “the fountain of life”, and is intended as a tribute to life itself, to water and to the way water impacts and nourishes our lives every day.
It honors the creativity and innovation that has built the foundation for the solutions that we are able to present today, and the constant development and adaptation that improves efficiency, water safety and accessibility for people all over the planet. At the same time, it works as a tribute of the many years of product development and manufacture that has taken place at AVK premises – not just here in Galten, but all over the world.
The jar is created by Peter Brandes, a Danish painter, graphic artist, sculptor and photographer. His ceramic art, such as the jar, is inspired by ancient Greek art and mythology.
AVK’s CEO & Founder, Niels Aage Kjær has a deep passion for art, which is very apparent when walking around in our departments here in Skovby and Galten. Brandes has a special place in Kjær’s artistic heart, and was a natural choice when considering a comprehensive piece such as the jar.
