Cool Pool Tile Mosaics

Cool Pool Tile Mosaics

by Rob Cox, April 16, 2013

Bob Parmele enjoying the final stages of his Sherwood Lake, California installation of Vogland's Art workA while back, we did a blog post on Luxury Pool Surfaces, which included tile, but not Tile Mosaics - these are artistic jewels that are tiled in place, either as part of an all-over pool tile installation, or set into a new coat of pool plaster.

Tile Mosaics can be created in any image that you can dream up. One person that has dreamed up, and created hundreds of underwater pool tile murals is Robert Vogland, of Vogland.com

It's called Figurative Art, or graphic representations of real objects - created into a tile mosaic, that can be affixed to your pool floor and walls. The website calls them Custom Designed Hand Made Ceramic Tile Mosaic Murals. That's a mouthful, I'll just call it Pool Mosaic Art.

Here's a sample of some of Vogland's work. He is based in Hawaii, but his skills are in demand in other exotic locales, around the world.
