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.

      So beautiful... My sister just moved to this lake and to have an item from a small lake in Massachusetts was amazing. She was thrilled and has a perfect place in her house to see it and the lake at the same time!!!

        I was so thriled with the quality and appearance of this product. I have such happy memories of fishing, swimming, boating, etc. on this lake with my Dad. Plus, he's into topography, being a civil engineer. This was the PERFECT gift for him!

          I was so, so impressed when I opened and saw this product in person. It is great quality, and I can't wait to see my Dad's face on Christmas when he opens it. It is the lake my family has gone to for decades and will look beautiful in the house my parents are building up there.

            The levels of depth on the lake look really neat. It's a little on the expensive side, but worth it in my opinion. Would be really neat if nearby mountains were included in the map.

              I LOVED this item! Our family has had land on this lake since the lake was created in the early 60s. There are lots of memories and family gatherings there and this gift was a special remembrance of that. It wasn't expensive, it was completely quickly and arrive way earlier than expected. I have already recommended this to many friends.

                Comments about UncommonGoods Lake Topography Art:

                I purchased this for my husband's birthday because we'd visited one of the lakes on the list for our honeymoon. I bought the single-layer 8x10. The detail on it is very precise. In person, it looks better than the image in the product description.

                The first email I received after placing the order had a subject line including "email 1 of 4" and in the body it said I would be hearing from the artist. I figured that would be email 2 of 4, a proof would be 3 of 4, and tracking would be 4 of 4, but ultimately none of those ever happened.

                I was worried after not hearing anything after the first email so I emailed customer service to ask if I should have heard from the artist by then. I only received a canned response restating the estimated ship time, which is NOT what I asked about.

                I wound up calling to ask about the order yet again and was told by the customer service person that the order was already on its way and would arrive the next day. I explained that I would have liked the opportunity to have a small symbol made to mark the location of the place my husband and I stayed on our honeymoon and said I hadn't been given any proof or tracking information. The rep asked me to confirm my email address and said that he'd send me the tracking information. He added that it was "too late" for a proof and no customization beyond choosing the actual lake was allowed anyway. I don't know that I'm going to order anything from here again. I don't feel like I should have to chase down answers and it isn't worth the hassle.

                I did say I would recommend this to a friend but to be clear, I only mean the product. If I could do it over again, I'd buy from another vendor.

                  I got this for my best friend's birthday. She is getting married later this year and having a destination wedding on Captiva Island, Florida. Her family has vacationed there for many years and now she's getting married there so it's a special location for her. I originally was going to get her the Lake Erie one (we grew up on the shores of Lake Erie together) but I was so excited to see they offered a Captiva Island one. She absolutely loves it!! This makes a great and very special gift for remember the places in the world that hold special memories for us. I would definitely order again, the product came out beautifully. The only downside was the time for the custom order but that was totally my fault because I didn't find this until right before her birthday. I'm considering ordering a great lakes or Lake Erie one for my dad for Christmas/birthday and maybe even one for myself since it is my home! I would recommend this for sure if you are considering ordering one. Just give yourself plenty of time to receive it.
