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.

          Being in a new relationship it is hard to come up with ideas on gifts. He lives on this lake and fishes in it so it will be a great gift. I am curious to see what the bigger options would include.

            This product was very beautiful when it finally arrived. I got the cutting of all the Great Lakes and it made a perfect gift for my boyfriend who is from MI. The frame was very solid, a lot sturdier than I thought it would be, which was a nice surprise. I was a little worried about the blue color because it was a different shade on the website vs. on the confirmation email I got. However, it ended up looking nice with our houses decor; the blue was a little deeper and greener than how it is pictured on this website.

                Absolutely thrilled with this product, craftsmanship, and delivery! It came way before their estimated shipping date, and arrived the day before Valentine's day (It's a gift, so you can only imagine my excitement at the early shipping)
                I ordered the 8x10 and it's fantastic. It's a much smaller lake and I doubt there would've been enough detail to make the more $$ options worth it, the 8x10 is exactly what I was hoping for and I cannot wait to present it tomorrow. Highly recommend this company and their products!

                  My husband spent the summers of his youth on Gloucester pool and took our entire family there 8 summers ago. He was amazed by this gift and couldn't imagine how I had procured such an unexpected gift.

                    Purchased it as a housewarming gift for our daughter and son-in-law who moved back home after many years away! They love the peninsula and loved the map. Their neighborhood is also depicted!
