Shishi Odoshi are Japanese bamboo water fountains originally intended to ward off deer from gardens. The term "Shishi Odoshi" literally means deer scarer. In this project my partner and I created a six foot tall version of the traditional Japanese fountain with multiple tiers of cantilevered bamboo rods. The fountain is constructed entirely from bamboo, twine, and a few glasses to catch water at each stage.
