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.

I would buy this product again and again, if I had variants!

Comments about UncommonGoods Deep Sea Sand Art:

My daughter has this positioned on her dressing table and I find her twirling it and gazing at the patterns many times a day. She loves it. I see it's value also as a destressing tool.

On the downside - it's a bit too big. Had it been a third or even half its present size, it would have fit neatly on a desk top or a small side table and also been easier to handle. It's current scale makes it impressive but less convenient in small apartments.

Comments about UncommonGoods Deep Sea Sand Art:

I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my Son who lives in another state, so I wanted to see it prior to shipping. It is nicely made and will fit just about anywhere. It almost did't get put back in the box, because I could not keep my hands off of it for wanting to see what the next sand picture would look like. Since I've wrapped it up again for shipping, I have to say: " I miss it!"

Comments about UncommonGoods Deep Sea Sand Art:

Such a beautiful reminder of the good memories made at the seaside cottage where my sisters and friends gathered this year. Our hosts loved this gift! Such a beautiful reminder. They can't seem to get enough of the endless shapes and patters and have found it to be very "tranquilo". Thank you!

Comments about UncommonGoods Deep Sea Sand Art:

I had no idea there would be so much maintenance involved. I expected to have a nice picture when I took it out of the box. That was not the case and would have made a sad gift.

Like Relaxing? This sand sculpture is for you.

Comments about UncommonGoods Deep Sea Sand Art:

This product has a permanent place on my coffee table, where I can watch the falling sands creating beautiful peaks and valleys. I do like that there is some sparkle added to the sands in the dark and light contrast effect.
I appreciate the pamphlet with instructions on how to adjust the air in the sculpture to get the right amount of pressure to create perfectly falling grains of sand. The U tube videos helped me to see and listen to the artists suggestions on how to create great sand pictures.

I bought this as a Christmas gift. Since Christmas is several weeks away, I thought I would display it in my house to see if it was a good gift and worth the price. I enjoy it so much that I will probably order another for myself.
