Visual Voyage

A lake is more than just a body of water. Transport yourself back to the tree-lined lake you splashed in every summer or the serene stretch of water you sailed on your honeymoon.

This series of three-dimensional maps capture memorable sites in painted birch plywood. Each 3D 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.

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.
