Angling Artist: Tyson Weiss

Fish in the Garden can be arranged into schools to give gardens and spaces a defined décor.

Tyson Weiss of Falmouth, Maine, was studying biology at the University of Southern Maine when the economy collapsed in 2008. But with work difficult to find in the recession, Weiss took the leap at turning his passions for fish and artwork into a full-time career.

Since that time, Fish in the Garden has grown from providing unique artwork to private homes and gardens, to decorating hospitals and, most recently, the new On The Water Store in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Currently working out of a 4,000 square-foot studio, Tyson creates ceramic and stainless-steel fish, including trout, salmon, bass, and koi, and arranges them in schools to give gardens and spaces a sense of flow, the way a school of fish changes shape to fit its environment.

When he’s not in the studio, Tyson is often on the water in Maine, spending about 100 days each season pursuing striped bass and bluefin tuna.

    I tried several times in 2020 to reach Tyson Weiss but his “mailbox” was always full. I tried again in July 2021,and his “mailbox” was still full. I sent several emails but they were ignored. I phoned several places to see if he was still in business (The Botanical Garden and the local “city hall” and was assured that he was still around. I took a chance and ordered 4 of his ceramic fishies and paid by credit card. He was able to debit the card within 24 hours. That was 3 weeks ago. I have heard nothing since he got his money. Stamps. com, USPS, and Canada Post have been unable to find/deliver the package. He got his money (500.00 including duty) and he could care less about a refund or a replacement. I think the whole operation is unscrupulous at best.
