At the craft fairs, my table is set up with many sandscapes that have already been constructed, as well as the component parts to encourage people to create their own.
All sandscapes include a container, many one of a kind, the rake and various sticks, stones, shells and other decorative objects such as statues or candle holders.
They are currently priced between $12 and $50, depending on the size and uniqueness of the containers.
I like to repurpose picture frames and turn them into the container. I have also used ceramic plates or bowls, candy dishes, bamboo plates, charger plates or decorative containers that I find in places like Homegoods, or at thrift shops.
The rake is handcrafted, each one individually, by me. The rake, in my opinion, is the most important part of the sandscape because it allows you to “play in the sand!”
I decided early on that it would be great to offer other creations with a variation on the sandscape theme. So, my display now includes mini sandscapes, shell scapes, tile scapes, sandscape ornaments and what I refer to as “message in the bottle” sandscapes.
Additionally, I decided to include some compatible photographs of beautiful floral and nature themes (This is a great time to give a shout out to my cousin Joan, who provided me with some great photographic shots taken around her New England home) to complete my display.
Thanks for finding me on the web. My site is a work in progress. Sandscaper Andy
