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:

The Deep Sea Sand Art creates a beautiful and unique picture each time. The sand drifts slowly to the bottom, creating art both on the top half and bottom half as it does. Once complete, it leaves a mountainous creation of colors and shapes that is gorgeous.

Pros

  • Is different every time

Cons

  • My son keeps trying to take it into his room.

Best Uses

  • Art that is always changing
  • Calming Decoration

Comments about UncommonGoods Deep Sea Sand Art:

It sits either on the coffee table or the ledge in the kitchen. We flip it every morning, every night and many times in between. It is amazing the patterns it creates, and is just as much fun to watch it, as it is to see the final creation.
