Shifting Sands

Ever changing, this sand art is an awesome microcosm of natural elements and landscapes. Give the frame a gentle tilt or a more extreme angle and watch as the flow and speed of the falling sands form tiny deserts, mountains, clouds, rain, oceans and smoke, all ebbing and flowing into one another.

There is an eternal and yet fleeting quality about this interactive art, and the sparkling sand will mesmerize as it becomes a tiny primordial universe right there on your desk. Created by Klaus Bosch and handmade in Austria, this inventive artwork will bring a calming, natural presence and a sense of wonder to your office or home.

Available in Black Beech Wood or Walnut - sold separately.

Klaus Bosch

Klaus Bosch calls himself the Sandman, and rightfully so. Born in Lustenau, Austria, Bosch created "Rainbow Vision" sand pictures and "Za-Zen" zen gardens. He continually produces beautiful works of art based on the ever changing quality of sand.

Many would call him an artist, but the Sandman considers himself a talented craftsmen. As a child, Bosch was fascinated by science, the cosmos and stars, and the idea of being part of the bigger picture of the universe. collection
