Sands Of Time

Place this magical beauty on a bookshelf, desk, mantel, or coffee table, rotate the glass ring, and watch as delicate drifts of light, dark, and glittery golden sand shift into deserts, mountains, clouds, rain, oceans and smoke, all ebbing and flowing into one another.

UncommonGoods placed our first order of Klaus Bosch’s sand art on January 10, 2008, and it's been beloved by our customers ever since. Here’s what some of them have said about it:
“A beautiful piece of art that morphs every time you flip it over. The sand flows beautifully and makes a different design every time it falls.”
“It's so easy to get lost in the ever-changing artistic formations of the Deep Sea Sand Art; as a brief escape from the day's turmoil or a means of peaceful reflection.” “My parents are so thrilled by it that they send me pictures every day to show me how it looks.”
“I would recommend this as a great gift for someone that has everything. I’m thinking of purchasing another one for myself.”
“This is the coolest most mesmerizing desk top gift ever.”
Handmade in Austria.

I live in Canada and wanted to send a gift to a male friend in San Francisco, CA. He's one of those "has-it-all" people so it was a real challenge finding something for him.

I had it delivered to his office and the response from him and everyone at the office was overwhelming! Someone from the office would send me a picture everyday of the unique designs they made with the sand. Everyone loved it!

It's a very different gift and is very tasteful. I myself haven't seen it, but it looks like it's well-made and is definitely quality value for the price. It has become my new "go-to" gift for anyone who is hard to shop for!

Does not work as advertised

The seam on the frame is mismatched. Product still doesn't work as advertised. It only makes dunes - not landscapes.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Deep Sea Sand Art:

      I received this as a gift from my husband and we love it! It's best if you can put a light in front of it to enhance the sparkle in the sand. I have also given one as a gift on two occasions and the recipients LOVED it. So unique and looks beautiful even when it's not creating a new masterpiece. Just when you think you have seen all it can do, it will surprise you with something you have never seen before. It's very relaxing to watch and it never gets old. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

        Comments about UncommonGoods Deep Sea Sand Art:

        This looks great out of the box. The sand is pretty much Black, White, and Gold, and falls at different rate due to it being different weights. This means that the colors will mostly stay separate, but will blend nicely in the right conditions. This thing has been turned a number of times and it is always interesting to see what design it will make.

        We did need to remove some air when we got it, as the sand was falling very slowly. It was really easy to adjust this with the included tools and instructions.
