This work requires intense concentration and skilled hands to successfully re-create an image made entirely of sand.
One of the most unique gifts you can give a loved one is a sand-painting. Each painting is hand-crafted by a highly-trained artist who must painstakingly fill the jar or frame with sand, layer by layer, to create beautiful pictures and images. This work requires intense concentration and skilled hands to successfully re-create an image made entirely of sand.
It is impossible not to be impressed when looking at each detail that has been added using nothing but tiny grains of sand and a small scoop to create images and pictures that take on a painting-like level of complexity and feeling.
Our hand-crafted collection boasts a wide-array of different scenes ranging from desert landscapes to beaches with coconut trees and can all be personalized with names and dates to commemorate or mark any special occasion.
The art of sand-painting is becoming popular across the world for its ability to capture feelings and emotions in ways a picture or object never could and we pride ourselves on creating magical gifts that will enchant and mark memories that last a lifetime.
We only use Grade A sand, the finest grain available, to enable our artists to capture minute details and ensure the integrity and stability of our paintings so they last forever. All our sand is carefully washed, graded and purified before we begin paining and we currently have 81 distinct colors from which artists can choose to capture every detail of the original image.
Our Glass Frames:
All our Glass-Frames are manufactured by hand and are especially designed for the single purpose of containing custom sand paintings. We offer a variety of shapes and sizes limited only by your imagination. Simply select your frame design and upload a picture and our team of specially trained artisans can begin creating a one-of-a-kind piece of art in any size or shape.
Sand and Art is a studio dedicated to the highly-specialized art of creating lasting images and memories using nothing but colored sand and we are able to customize existing images to create a unique piece of art to commemorate any special occasion.
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.
Unlike many factory workshops, SandAndArt believes 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. When you buy a piece of art from us you are helping support these wonderful artists by giving them a chance to show their skills worldwide.
