I had intended to have it inset into the kitchen tile, but the work was done before I could get it to the workman. The piece is made by Oceanside Glasstile, a big custom tile designer.
This piece seems like it was a prototype as the fish are not shown on their website. It is so pretty, and can be used as shown.... Just on a pedestal or hung on a wall with some L shaped clips....Of course, it can also be inset into a tile bath or kitchen. The label on the back shows it as Custom Concept Board, and it lists the individual art fish used in the design: an angel fish, a small sea turtle, a Ginabaldy Fish, an arrow fish, a trigger fish and a clown fish. The fish are done in a beautiful clear and slightly iridescent aqua blue glass.
The background is a mix of custom tiles they call tess field. The tiles are set on snow white grout and mounted on composite board.It measures 20 wide, 12 high and 1 thick. The plaque weighs 12 pounds. I added some felt to the piece to protect the tiles from being abraded.
There are 3 small tiles that have abrasions or cracks. All seem to be original and filled with grout (see close-up photos).Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
