An outstanding example of artist Darani Lewers metalwork and sculptural practice is Downpipe c 1964. Functioning as a downpipe, it is fitted at the front face of the Ancher House building. As part of the 2005 Gallery capital works program, the Downpipe was removed and conserved.

Following the theft of the Gerald Lewers fountain in 2008, Downpipe was again removed, for security reasons, being reinstated after the upgrades of garden security in late 2009. Its reinstallation to the garden in 2009 was compromised by storm damage to the Ancher House roof. Its repositioning matches as near as possible to its original site.
