Visual Voyage

A lake is more than just a body of water. Transport yourself back to the tree-lined oasis you splashed in every summer with this wood wall art.

Captivating in its detail, this informative design features a three-dimensional map that recreates your favorite lakeside getaway in painted birch plywood. Each bathymetric piece drinks deeply from traditional studies of the earth's surface, displaying up to eight levels of the waters' depths on terraced sheets of wood. Surrounding roads, towns and state lines give context and show how vast lake systems (such as the Great Lakes) connect to neighboring states.

Looking for something a little simpler? The smaller iteration of this lake design tells the water's history in one-dimension.

With over 4,000 lakes and coastal regions available, you're bound to find a favorite to display with pride or to pass along as a treasured keepsake.

Pieces are laser-cut, hand-assembled, and framed in an oak shadowbox in Harbor Springs, Michigan.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Comments about LAKE TOPOGRAPHY ART:

The product was exactly as it was perceived to be. I thought the owners did a really good job answering questions of others to help me understand what I was getting. I really liked the product and so did my whole family. Lake Eufaula is a special place to us, and what better way than this to celebrate it.

    Comments about LAKE TOPOGRAPHY ART:

    This will be a treasured feature in our new house. Awesome workmanship, cool product. I worked back-and-forth with the artist to customize it (small extra cost, but worth it, to add towns and a cabin to the artwork to make it extra-special. Communication was very prompt, and I received the product more than 2 weeks before I expected it to arrive. The only (minor) disappointment is that there is glass covering the bas relief of the lake ... good protection, but I kind of miss the tactile experience. Even though this was definitely an indulgence, it was worth it for the sentimental value and the focus it will bring.

    Comments about LAKE TOPOGRAPHY ART:

    When I saw this item I knew it would be perfect for my husband's birthday. He grew up on this lake and now that we only get there several weekends a year it's great to have a visual representation hanging in our living room. While we have plenty of our own pictures this 3D topographic map with the lake depths gives us the full picture. I could not be more pleased with the quality of the workmanship. Most importantly my husband loves it!

      Comments about LAKE TOPOGRAPHY ART:

      My wife grew up camping, exploring, and sailing around the Great Salt Lake. When I saw this beautiful art work of the Great Salt Lake, I knew it would be a treasured gift of the lake that has been so much a part of her life and loves. The professionalism of the staff in working with me to ensure the proof was exactly what I wanted before ordering was excellent. They even accommodated me, for a minimal fee, in adding additional labeling and a short inscription on the artwork. Despite the disclaimer of the work being delivered a month or so after approval of the final proof, I received the work the following week. My wife was thrilled when she opened the box to the point of having tears in her eyes. I would thoroughly recommend this beautifully done artwork for anyone that has deep ties to a special lake.

          My daughter and I pitched in and bought this map as a christmas gift for my son-in-law. I was a little nervous because the pressure was all on me. He spent is summers growing up on the lake. He absolutely loved the Lake Topography Art. Our compliments to the artist that is able to put together this amazing map with such detail.
