What can a bottle, a funnel and some sand of different colors make?


Sand art is the creation of different colored particles of sand in a bottle and these creations are stunning to say the least. Whilst I'm not that keen on buying a sand art bottle, I do appreciate the work and time involved in creating these decorative and colorful sand art bottles.



#4 The art inside the bottle is a sight of sunrise or sunset in desert life with mountains, camels and birds.

#5 Multi-colored sands.

Sand art originated in the city of Petra in Jordan during the early 20th century. Today very few sand artists have attained the level of mastery of artists from Jordan.


#7 The only tool used in this art is a funnel. Different colored sands passed through a thin funnel to make intricate designs inside the bottle.

The amount of time it takes as well as the amount of passion that goes into making these pieces of art is incredible.

The finished results appear ornate, detailed and distinctive!

I love this....esp. works of art. The sand art bottles look beautiful. I wanna have them. I had seen them here also in our trips and I bought about 2 of them and gave them as gifts. I should have bought one for myself.

They look really beautiful! How much does one bottle cost averagely?

foongpc said... @ 7/7/11 1:36 PM

What happens if I accidentally pour some of the sand out? The design gone?

foongpc said... @ 7/7/11 1:37 PM

Ohhh where is this sweetie? The last time I bought my bottle (with my name written with sand) was at Shah Alam donkey years ago.. I don't seem to come across shops or people doing this around Kl.. :)

Bella Enveeus said... @ 7/7/11 6:23 PM

I think this requires lots of patience and a steady arm.. Coz once you put in the sand, cannot fix already..

They're beautiful! It must really take a lot of patience to make. It must be very expensive? I'd love to have one though.
