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.

        This was a gift for my family. The lake was the lake my father grew up on. The artist was able to personalize the item with a marker for our house, correcting an issue, and adding a personal legend with our house address. It was a gift that was well received and will remain in the family!

          The 1st Map was delivered damaged. I received great follow up e-mails. Re-ordered and received a new one in good condition.

          I will likely purchase more of these maps in the future

            This product turned out even better than I expected it would. It is very detailed and is a great piece for our home. We have a "map room" that it works great in. I love it.

            Great workmanship! Details are precise and crisp.

            I wish I bought the larger size but it was much more expensive. If you can afford it and have the wall space, I'd highly recommend one if the larger sizes.

            Service and delivery comments:

            It took awhile but I was warned ahead of time.

                    Comments about UncommonGoods Lake Topography Art:

                    I was very disappointed with this product. I chose to purchase an 8X10 for my inlaws to keep at their lake house. The finished product was NOT laser cut in multiple layers. The lake was one layer and the land was another layer. I was given the impression by the image that their would be multiple layers within the lake. Once I contacted customer service, It was explained that the fine print indicates multiple layers are not available on an 8X10. This was not disclosed in the catalog that I originally saw the product and the fine print is on a completely separate tab you must click through from the product page. Poor disclosure.

                    Furthermore, the frame looks like something my five year old son could have stained and is very cheap looking.

                    Save your money and do not buy this. I will not be purchasing any items from this company again.
