RainChains

Hand Crafted

Sculptor Allison Newsome enjoys developing sustainable, LEED-based solutions for the Earth’s ecosystem by applying nature-based strategies in her design (also known as “biomimicry.”) Inspired by the redwood trees of her native California whose upper canopies catch coastal fog and direct it downward into the tree, she designs large RainKeeps with a colorful petal-like metal canopy to direct rainwater naturally into the tank.

Instead of using a canopy design, all residential RainKeeps come with a rain chain accessory to direct water into the tank via gutter or roof corner. The chains are handmade repousse leaf designs made out of recycled aluminum.

 

Elemental Rain Chain Accessory - now available

Inspired by rubber tree leaves, Allison created the Elemental Rain Chains in collaboration with the artisans of the Silver Temple district in Chiang Mai, a 13th Century city in northern Thailand. 

 

Origins Rain Chain Accessory - available soon

Allison created Origins Rain Chains based on drawings by Native American Deborah Spears Moorehead, which tell the Rhode Island Wampanoag tribe’s origins and “Sky Woman” story.
