how about clay bird bath with clay fish on wire inside. Trompe l'oeil fishpond mosaic in Bedford Road, Croydon by mosaic artist Gary Drostle. I love the shadows under the fish - really creates depth. Nice movement in the water as well
I really love this idea, would like to incorporate in the stone in the basement area instead of mosaic risers - I've re thought this and think may be too overpowering. Thinking tiled risers and small pebble mosaics in floor would be much nicer.
