Lines In The Sand

Take a moment for yourself as you give your creativity an oasis for private reflections, hidden thoughts, and creative yearnings. Inspired by the transitory and forgiving nature of sand, artist Jayne Riew designed this meditation box for artists, writers, and other creative professionals with lots of mental traffic. Fine grains of sand shift and swirl with your imagination and engage the mind in a way that a blank canvas or paper cannot. A soft velvet layer lines the base, creating a soothing sensation as the stylus makes its mark.

The compact size of a tablet, this meditation box can be used as an innovative escape at your desk or bedside table to encourage meditative calm. Made in High Ridge, Missouri.

Read more about how the Meditation Box made the cut for the Uncommon Collection.

The Meditation Box was designed by Jayne Riew and produced by Artificer Wood Works (Wine for a Wedding).

Jayne Riew makes books and boxes designed to promote introspection or documentation, or to help identify the unspoken or unexpressed. When it comes to toxic emotions in particular, acknowledging unwanted thoughts is hard enough. Having a personal space with a lid or cover such as the Meditation Box can invite the practice of expressing such thoughts and emotions.

Since their founding in 2011, Artificer Wood Works has been a company of creative thinkers and makers, blending an innovative spirit with the nostalgia of artisanal craftsmanship to handcraft unique and clever products. Their journey began when the search for a unique wedding gift inspired them to create Wine for a Wedding—a unique wine box designed to celebrate future anniversaries. Since then, the size and capabilities of their wood shop has grown significantly, allowing them to explore new creations. collection

              This was a "just because" gift for a friend who needed a little pick up in life. She was totally in awe with it. The box is beautiful and she finds writing in the sand extremely helpful for quick escapes from daily life.

                Comments about MEDITATION BOX:

                This is a very lovely and thoughtful gift. I think it provides the mind with the chance to be still and think while you doodle in the fine sand. While your hands are occupied with creating a design, your mind is freed to pursue its own direction. Try it and see - you will be surprised!

                                      My wife and I bought this for my Mom for Mother's day. She is recovering in a nursing home Physical Therapy) from major back surgery. She really did like the Meditation Box. We did not open the sand yet as we will wait for her to get back home.

                                      It's such a simple, personal yet thoughtful gift to give someone. It's different, it's personal and it makes you stop just for a second to think. Sometimes that's all you need is a second.

                                      Thanks for your site and for the unique gifts that you carry. We will be back.

                                      Thank You!

                                            Comments about MEDITATION BOX:

                                            This is a very simply designed meditation helper. It's perfect for relaxing and relieving stress. The only downside is that the bottom of the area containing sand is made of felt, so when you move the sand around, some of it may skip out of the box. Not the biggest deal, though.

                                            Service and delivery comments:

                                            Prompt delivery and good packaging.
