An intricate urn-style fountain designed for the Orange County Rescue Mission’s Village of Hope by Lake Forest-based Richard Cohen Landscape & Construction landed the firm two nods from the California Landscape Contractors Association – a Beautification Award and a Special Effects Trophy.

“We are honored to have received these awards that continue to show our commitment to quality and sustainability in each and every one of our projects,” says company President Richard Cohen.

The water feature is also in the running for a Guinness World Record for the largest and heaviest urn. It weighs 16,500 pounds and measures over 16 feet tall.

Designed by Denmark artist Peter Brandes, the urn displays the 12 disciples in raised bone-colored images. The feature appears to float atop water via a hidden steel pole.
