Against the Grain

See art from a new angle. This shape-shifting sandscape presents a new vista with every turn, holding an ever-changing microcosm of natural elements behind glass. Austrian artist Klaus Bösch, also known as the "sandman," invites others to participate in his process by flipping the statement-making design to create their own sandscapes at a whim. Inside the oversized stainless steel frame, sparkling light and dark sands trickle together into deserts, mountains, clouds, rain, oceans, and smoke, all ebbing and flowing into one another. Handmade in Austria.
