The Building Process
During the creation of your custom built aquascape, we update you with images so you can watch your aquascape progress through its various stages until it is completed and ready for dispatch.
The following is a great example of images you would receive during the build of your aquascape:
Stage 1. - Blocking
We build the initial shape of your aquascape in 'wet form'. Ceramic is very malleable at this early stage and alterations can be made if you chose to.
Stage 2. - Rock Definition & Canals
Ceramic is highly porous, more porous than live rock, but we add deep canals, crevices, and recesses by hand to make our ceramic look more like rock than a lump of clay! When it comes to rock definition we use two techniques that help give your aquascape great depth under your reef tank lighting.
Stage 3. - Surface Detailing & Abrasion
Using a variety of methods and our special made tools we finish your aquascape with surface detailing that gives the sculpture the appearance of water abrasion just as rock has when taken from the ocean.
Stage 4. - After Firing
The final stage of every project is the firing. After the scape has cooled from the kiln we photograph every project and send you the cool pictures. These pictures are also used on our website to showcase your amazing aquascape.
