Amazing 3D Swimming Pools

Amazing 3D Swimming Pools

Swimming Pools in 3D – I’ve got these pictures from an anonymous person who emailed me, using the Send us Tips form, but he or she sent me only the pictures, no details about the artist or the company that made these amazing 3D swimming pools, but who knows maybe someone who’s reading this blog might know something and post comment. Now coming back to these swimming pools pictures we can see that the artist has just painted the side walls and the floor in such a manner that creates an interesting illusion, , when filled with water. Enjoy the Swimming Pools!

Later edit – We found that Robert Vogland is the designer behind this project and his work can be seen at www.vogland.com.

    Looks very neat! I was imagining paints on the side that look like.. mini tunnels or something?

    These are chalk drawings, and the artist is named Julian Beever. He has worked in the U.K., Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Germany, the USA and Australia for over ten years. Google his name, he has done some work that I find much more amazing.

  • Matthew September 3, 2007 at 23:54 PMLogin to Reply →

    these are actually pre-made tiles that can be placed into your pool spa or fountain when they do the final surface finish. My family just got the pool redone and we placed a few fish and a turtle in ours, sans shadows. these ones however look like they’ve been done in mosaic tile, which would mean an actual artisan is involved(think: more $).

    I have a big green turtle in my pool too! Made it myself. It’s a mosaic. It’s not exactly 3-D but it has some highlights and shadows. We sometimes stand on it and “ride”.

    Looks pretty awesome. Is there a large market for this type of thing? It look a bit elitist but if you can afford it what the heck…go for it. I probably would. Now how about that godzilla scene where he rises out of the ocen to eat japan, you know…that country that bombed us with mitsubishi zeros that are now expenxive imports that americans drive. Well, young americans…ww2 era folks don’t tend to buy those crazy jap traps.

  • eric September 4, 2007 at 02:59 AMLogin to Reply →

    those walls aren’t painted, they are made with 1″x1″ glass tiles, designed for high-end bathrooms and pools.

    there is a guy in Tucson, AZ that does it, and I know there are a few others in America and a bunch in Europe. the “true” artists use imported venetian tile. if the plaster in a pool runs $2k, glass tile like that might run $20k if imported from mexico, or $40k if imported from italy.

    it is an amazing effect when the pool is full of water.

    These are not chalk drawings, if you notice, there is water in the pool in some of the photographs. And the shark clearly looks like mosaic tile. And they’re laying the tiles in one of the photos. Hahah. But, this would probably cost you 1000$ a mosaic based on what my grandfather’s terrazzo and tile company charges and depending on how big they are and how long it takes. But yeah, they’re very nice mosaics. Makes me think of a roman bath house.
