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.

Great bday gift...but don't choose the optional "note"

Comments about UncommonGoods Deep Sea Sand Art:

I've grown to enjoy this gift more each time I play with it. I didn't know it would come with a syringe and needle for maintenance. So it was good to learn exactly what to do in the instructions booklet. One thing that was unfortunate...I wrote an optional birthday note to be included with the package. When the gift was opened, the note was not there. That was a bit sad because it was supposed to be the birthday message.

      I'm using this product as a decoration to a boring office, and also for my bedroom. Yes I bought two of them because I really found them interesting and beautiful. Also is an attention grabber when someone enters the office and or bedroom.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Deep Sea Sand Art:

      i originally bought one for the "reception area" in our counseling office - EVERYBODY loved it, especially me - sadly, someone tried to pick it up and dropped it - shattered everywhere - in the meantime, i bought one for my utility room (yoga, crafting, laundry folding, guest room) and one for my daughter - finally bought this 4th one for work, although I'll be keeping it in my office!
