Tiling a corner shower shelf?

Please educate me on what I should know when considering a corner shower shelf, particularly re what it takes to tile it.

Is it more difficult to tile than a standard rectangular niche? And would it be possible to tile it with thick handmade tile or is that asking for trouble? (My kid hopes to have a touch of Seneca handmade tile in his shower to match the Seneca Sea Glass he's doing for his vanity backsplash/wall. The rest of the shower will be in simple 12x24 white rectified tile.)

My GC wanted my "niche or shelf" decisions weeks ago... I hadn't really considered a corner shelf like this, but now it seems a good strategy for both shampoo storage and leg shaving (and at least some bit of stability if one needed to sit down in a hurry--we are small people, so this size would be OK in a pinch). p.s. we're thinking of doing one (corner shelf OR niche, not both).

Here's the thick, chunky Seneca tile in question (I'm guessing it would be challenging to get it to work in such an exacting dimension?)
