Smile Custom-made ceramic tank decor?

I was browsing the Betta homes sticky and got an idea...

Lots of people decorate their tanks with store-bought decor, which gets old and cliche. But I wonder how many people would love to have custom decor for their tanks? I have daily access to the ceramics lab at my school and I possess the talent to make complicated ceramic sculptures of various sizes and shapes glazed in loads of different (food and fish-safe) glazes. I think if anyone is considering this option for decorating their tank, I could be that person to make it possible.

I wouldn't consider this an advertisement as much as it's a profile. I don't want to be dead-set on doing this until I'm sure there are people who are interested.

I'll post some pics of my sculptures in a bit if people seem interested in the idea.


Let me know what you think of my idea! :)

You need to be very careful with adding ceramics to a tank. Even if its food safe, etc, its not usually supposed to stay constantly submerged.

I would do it at your own risk, and make sure its fired well and FULLY, 100% glazed over, everywhere.
