William Pye (born 1938, London) is a British sculptor known particularly for his water sculptures.

Pye is the son of Sir David Randall Pye FRS, a mechanical engineer and academic administrator. He attended the Dragon School in Oxford. He subsequently studied at Wimbledon School of Art (1958–61) and the Royal College of Art (1961–65)] He became known for his sculptures in metal, stone and especially water. In the 1960s, Pye's sculptures were abstract using metal and stone. In the 1970s, he produced abstract geometrical works using stainless steel, sometimes including Kinetic aspects. He has undertaken major commissions including: "Jet Stream" and "Slipstream"’ water sculptures at the North Terminal at Gatwick Airport, England (1987). A 13×70m wall of water and entrance at the British Pavilion of the Seville Expo '92 at Seville, Spain (1992).
