But where will the plants go if the pond gets “zipped up?” I love scale models. Thanks!

Nice idea, it looks really good. Wonder where to get the actual zip stone.

At even a larger scale the zipper treads could be used as benches.
Very unusual but i like it.
wonder what the logo on the pull stands for?

Its rather amusing to have a zipper for a pond design. Perhaps they’ll think of a button design next?
Wow, this is really beautiful.

Good Pictures, Nice Idea, Bad execution. LOOK close…The Zipper Slider is no more then a plaque sitting on the stone zipper teeth. There is no zipper box to gather the teeth and it sits out of alignment. If your going to do all this work, why not go all the way with the most important sculptural element in the whole piece?

Thank you for creating this! It’s an original amusing idea that certainly looks better than a lot of steel grating. Imagine it at the beach, as the pier. Fly fishing – !
