Sands Of Time

This ephemeral sand-scape artfully demonstrates the universal principle of entropy through a fascinating, ever-changing microcosm of natural elements. Simply rotate the glass ring and watch as delicate drifts of light and dark sand shift into deserts, mountains, clouds, rain, oceans and smoke, all ebbing and flowing into one another. There is an eternal yet fleeting quality about this interactive art, and the sparkling sand will mesmerize as it shapes a tiny world right before your eyes. 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.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Deep Sea Sand Art:

    I gave this as a gift to my mother. She loves it! It provides hours of entertainment as the sand design is never the same twice. The tools and instructions for handling water evaporation is an additional bonus. I would recommend this product very highly and hope I get one as a gift myself!

          I gave this as a gift to my parents and my in-laws. My parents included it in their nautical-themed room that houses my dad's old navy memorabilia. I can stare at it for hours and watch how the design morphs into something unique every time.

            It was a Christmas present that almost didn't get wrapped or given!! I was having such a great time watching it and seeing what effect different angles had on the sand. Great product! A true artist! Might just have to get one for myself next Christmas!

                Comments about UncommonGoods Deep Sea Sand Art:

                My husband is a scientist who studies particle flow, nearshore sediments (sand) in particular. As a result, he's always looking for desktop wave machines, flowing sand displays, etc. This is by far the best one we've ever found. We like the size, the sleek design, the colors/sizes/varieties of the particles, the quality of construction, and particularly the fact that we were given the tools and instructions needed to change flow rates and care for the piece long term. Compared to other simple sand "toys" we have, the quality of this piece is exceptional, this is truly an object of beauty, a piece of art. A great gift for anyone, not just sand geeks like us. I will buy a second, perhaps a larger one from the artists website, so we can keep one at home and my husband can take the other to work.

                  A beautiful object that slows time. Backlit with bright light or a dim lamp, this can mesmerize you for a time. Better than blood pressure medication!

                    Bought this for my father as a birthday gift. He saw these on a trip and wanted to buy one, but they were all broken in the store. He loved it and thinks the sand looks like glaciers in Alaska. The sand was better than expected. The picture made it look like the sand was black, white, and grays, but it has gold and purple/red in it also which made it very beautiful. Very satisfied with the purchase!
