Visual Voyage

A lake is more than just a body of water. Transport yourself back to the tree-lined oasis you splashed in every summer with this wood wall art.

Captivating in its detail, this informative design features a three-dimensional map that recreates your favorite lakeside getaway in painted birch plywood. Each bathymetric piece drinks deeply from traditional studies of the earth's surface, displaying up to eight levels of the waters' depths on terraced sheets of wood. Surrounding roads, towns and state lines give context and show how vast lake systems (such as the Great Lakes) connect to neighboring states.

Looking for something a little simpler? The smaller iteration of this lake design tells the water's history in one-dimension.

With over 4,000 lakes and coastal regions available, you're bound to find a favorite to display with pride or to pass along as a treasured keepsake.

Pieces are laser-cut, hand-assembled, and framed in an oak shadowbox in Harbor Springs, Michigan.

Gorgeous piece!

For my husband's boss' retirement, instead of contributing to a gun, we decided to combine this gift with the Custom Map Bottle Opener Custom Map Location with Engraving. Both contain maps of his boss' vacation home. They are both unique to him and remind him of a special place anywhere he goes. We think this is a lovely retirement gift that that sentimental meaning and is classy.

Stunning art. I purchased the 8x10 and even with just the one layer, it is so beautiful! Impeccable detail and cut. Great quality frame and glass. Just perfect!

Great map - but missing a key element [San Juan Islands, WA]

4

The San Juan Island map is great - we have purchased the larger multi-layer version of this item in the past, but for my boss went with this smaller option. Trouble is, upon opening the gift he noticed that a very key part of the map was missing. He owns a house on a small island "Brown island" just off San Juan Island, near Friday Harbor, WA. Instead of an island, this map just has water where the island should be...now I understand that the level of detail isn't perfect, but w/o being able to preview the map I had no idea that the island (for which I purchased this item) was missing. My boss happens to be a geography major, so he was impressed with the map until he noticed this small yet very meaningful detail. Hoping that future versions can have Brown Island added. Thank you!!

So disappointed

Maybe it's because I ordered the 8x10 size, but the lack of detail is so disappointing. No depth, no facts about the lake regarding miles around, etc. Shows very few nearby streets. And not a fan of oak frames. It's just blah - not at all worth the money or the wait.

As I already stated: We were always pulling out an old porcelain trivet that features the land - this is so much better and it won't break!

Beautiful artwork! Will make a great present!!

I love this artwork! My dad is a hard to shop for fisherman who usually receives chocolate for Christmas. Not this year, folks! This artworks is absolutely beautiful and will be greatly appreciated. A great buy for the fisherman or the lover of lakes in your family. This artist also has an incredible amount of lakes you can chose from and the art includes the surrounding roads. The topography is so clear that I can pinpoint the lakehouse. Its stunning. My only wish is that the font on the art would be different or that there would be a choice for the font, but honestly, it works great for the cabin feel I am going for so it's not a problem for me.
