Mosaic tile images have been around for thousands of years. This implementation in 2012 included a Stradivarius violin wood-grain blend.
The violin pool was a Luxury Pools + Outdoor Living Pinnacle Award Winner in 2014.
Don’t Break the Neck
The pool is 7′-4″ deep where it meets the neck. It is possible that the body and neck could hinge due to differential soil settlement so extra reinforcing steel was added, reminiscent of the violin strings.
Similarly, the koi pond “bow” crosses the neck with acrylic windows separating fish from lap swimmers. Extra reinforcing was added here too and resembles the horse hair used for real violin bows.
