Deep Space

Send your imagination soaring through the starlit reaches of space as you gaze into the soothing, ever-changing view of this stellar sand window. Multicolored sand and water are sealed in a wooden frame, with the a view of planets and stars stretched out behind them. Rotate the glass, and enjoy the sight of the sand swirling and shifting into nebulous clouds and intricate, astral landscapes. The included rear mounting hardware allows you to rotate the frame a full 360 degrees. The handsome frame is made with farm-grown ayous wood from Cameroon, Africa. Created by Klaus Bosch, this inventive artwork will bring a calming, natural presence and a sense of wonder to your office or home. Handmade in Austria

Klaus Bosch

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

      This is not something you hang straight out of the box; it requires some patience to get the amount of air exactly right, but it is lovely, relaxing, and entertaining for the busy executive with a love of astronomy. It was very, very easy to mount and makes a wonderful addition to my husband's office.

      Comments about OUTER SPACE SAND ART:

      Use as docoration, but the product seems a bit too delicate to be rotating around . The back part that connects the frame and the wall seems generic and cheap. For the price and good reviews. I was expecting something a little more. Perhaps if it was worth half of what it cost, I wouldn't mind much.

        Comments about OUTER SPACE SAND ART:

        I got this for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day. Initially he didn't know what it was. He had never seen sand art before. Now after rotating it a few times he loves it. The only thing is it it has a rotating disk on the back but doesn't come with a stand so he has it resting on his fireplace.

        Perfect office artwork. Look away from your computer screen and enjoy calming, interesting, flowing art. Everyone who comes in contact will want to give it a spin and change the scenery. Stylish enough for an executives office. Durable enough to withstand a cubical or even front desk.

            It's hard to find good gifts for men. I got one of these sand scapes for my husband and one for a friend. They both loved them. My adult son visited (22 years old) and couldn't quit playing with it. It's art you can manipulate and experiment with. I would highly recommend it for anyone.

              My daughter and I opened this prior to wrapping it for my husband, and literally sat on the floor for twenty minutes watching a new image form. I couldn't be more pleased with this product - it's super cool, can be turned in different directions, and is just fascinating to watch. I will probably be asking for a similar one for my birthday!!

                We older folks have seen this a long time ago, but not everyone is our age!

                BARELY got a thumbs up! It is unique, but reminds me of items you would buy at your State Fair!

                Not exactly sure I like the background art in this one...would love to see something non-black. But this would probably be a good seller.

                Interesting but I'd have to see this one in person to watch it first.

                This is a beautiful piece of artwork. I love the others just like it, and I think that this would make a fabulous addition.

                I love sand art! However, it is usually too expensive for the novelty that it is....
