Lines In The Sand

You won't be able to take your eyes off this teeny screenie. These fun and mesmerizing sand art screens created by Klaus Boesch will capture everyone's attention at home or at the office with their originality and natural presence. Simply rotate the screen and marvel as the delicate light and dark sands shift into deserts, mountains, clouds, rain, oceans and smoke, all ebbing and flowing into one another. Gently shake if needed. Handmade in Austria. Available in blue, green, pink and black. Click here to see more of Klaus Boesch's work.

Includes a small syringe with needle for adding and removing water and air, which helps regulate and maintain the Screenie and makes sand flow more slowly or more quickly. Regulation, which is rarely required, should be done by adults only. Instructions included.

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

My 19 year-old daughter really liked this gift, however, it cannot withstand a drop to the floor. We have ordered another...

      I bought one of these for my son as a Christmas present and as soon as it came in the mail, it became a stocking stuffer. Very small, low quality - couldn't have been more corny. Seriously nothing cool about it.

        I bought this as a gift for my autistic nephew. He likes the movement and plays with it for long periods of time. It makes him smile.

        Comments about SCREENIE SAND ART:

        Bought this for a teen's stocking stuffer...
        Bright color and seems sturdy enough for an older child. I would be afraid of glass breakage with a younger child. I was aware of the small size from other reviews and general description, but seems even smaller when you see it in person. I think it has an effect on the definition of the sand formations compared to larger versions of this product.Still fun to play with and could be used as a stress buster!A little pricey for what you get!

          Comments about SCREENIE SAND ART:

          Wow! These sand pictures are very poor quality. Made in China for sure. Sands don't make unique scenes and the frames are made of cheap plastic. Maybe a good gift for small children but not adults. Very disapointed! Don't waist your money.

            I took it to work and everyone stops by my office to watch the sand drop or to see what design was created. It's a nice distraction during stressful workdays!!

            Delivery was quicker than I thought it would be and the product arrived in good condition.

              Comments about SCREENIE SAND ART:

              This is great fun, especially for those of us who grew up with these in the 1970's. I wanted my kids to see what they are like, so this small one was the most affordable way to do that! One warning though, they are made of glass, so younger kids need to be instructed and supervised, and coached what to do if there is breakage. Also, they need to be shown that the stand is not attached, so if it is picked up by the stand, the screen will drop and break.
