Most of our artisans have little formal education and come from impoverished backgrounds and we train them in a marketable skill so that they can support their families and communities while regaining the dignity of artistic expression. Many of our original artists have become teachers to the next generation in our growing studio and we pride ourselves on creating a sustainable art-form and business that helps develop people while providing the highest level of service to our customers.
Our paintings are created using nothing but various colored sand and we currently have 81 individual colors to choose from and can create even more by blending existing colors. These tiny grains of Grade A sand are painstakingly packed down into a desired vessel (often decorative frames or collector’s jars) using simple tools such as a small scoop, funnel and a stick to move the sand within the frame until we achieve the desired image.
This simple technique requires years of practice and a steady hand, coupled with a keen eye for detail. Once the image is complete, we seal the vessel with silicon to ensure the sand stays in place and the image becomes fixed and permanent. No glue, adhesives or binders are used in this process so it requires great skill to pack down the sand to a desired consistency so it doesn't shift over time.
In SandAndArt we believe that developing our artists has direct impact on the quality of our final pieces and we are honored to know that employing our staff not only allows them to express themselves artistically, but has real and noticeable economic impact on their families and communities.
