Beauty School

With the fluid, curving shapes of school fish on the move, Tyson Weiss's ceramic koi fish conjure a dreamy, underwater look that makes any spot a focal point. Each finned beauty is slipcast and glazed by hand in a deep cobalt blue. Their sinuous shapes seem to flow through the landscape, brightening up shady spots, turning mossy or ferny areas into instant Japanese gardens, guiding guests down a garden path, and bringing color during the drab times of year. As durable as they are stunning, they can withstand severe weather conditions year-round without fading or cracking; they can also be placed underwater. Each comes on a stake, for easy placement, with its tail pointing left or right (fishes' choice!). Add more as you like, experimenting to create your own arrangement. Sold individually. Handmade in Falmouth, Maine.

*Tail direction is random.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.


Made in Maine

Tyson Weiss owned a landscape design business for 12 years before he started making his collection of stoneware garden koi. "I came up with the concept when I was 19,” he says. “I had a ceramics teacher who had us keep a journal of pottery ideas. It was just a simple pencil sketch on the corner of a page. But the fish in the garden idea really clicked when I was on my first snorkeling trip in Belize. There was an underwater reef landscape with schools of colorful fish collectively making sinuous curves navigating among the tree and shrub-like coral structures, and I said to myself, 'This is it!' Now I am trying to bring that incredible beauty, this visual sensation of 'flow,' into gardens and interiors."
