It will spark conversation and allows you to draw focus on closing those big deals in the works.
If the Ballerina Black is the moving sand art that you nominate to be the center of attention in your household or office, it will not let you down. With this ever-changing art piece, you will be able to create new sandscapes with every turn. The Ballerina Black Sand Art will do several times a day what mother earth takes millions of years to accomplish.
Due to the handcrafted nature of each item, each piece bears its own unique qualities.
The KB Collection moving sand art is interactive, ever-changing, mesmerizing and versatile handcrafted art pieces. Turn the sand picture over to watch the battle of the elements: The sand just wants to settle at the bottom, the air just wants to escape to the top, the water hosts the party. The result is the sand trickles between the air bubbles to create fascinating stratifications in the sand mountains. You can tilt the Ballerina Sand Art at a slight angle to observe a different presentation of sand on the front and backside. Tilt at a greater angle and watch the sand crawl down the glass (the heavier sands will fall to the back. It is quite striking!)
More air creates a slower flow of sand resulting in a delicate trickle of sand making more dramatic peaks and valleys. Less air creates a faster flow of sand making dune shapes. Best of all, these handcrafted art pieces are equipped with an air hole to last for years on end, allowing for you to regulate the amount of air in each sand picture so you can make the sand fall as fast or as slow as you want.

Klaus Bosch (aka The Sandman) has been making his interactive KB Collection Sand Art in Lustenau, Austria since 1988. When Sandman was a younger man searching for his way in life, a friend of his gave him one of the original versions of sand art available in the '80s. He was captivated as his mind tried to wrap around the beauty of the art and why it did what it did. Fascinated, he decided to try to make one for himself. trial after trial, failure after failure, he finally created a sand picture he could sell in 1988. Yes, 6 years of experimentation finally resulted in what you see today as the KB Collection sand art. Klaus is always thinking of ways to defy gravity with his sand art.
The original, classic sandblend is what you see in the Deep Sea Pacific and a few others models.
Sandman's sand art has been in the display windows (worldwide) of Louis Vuitton and Nordstroms. He has been commissioned to make special gifts for Kings, Sultans, and famous dignitaries. His art can be found in hotels, spas and businesses around the globe.
From Sandman: "My sand art is spiritual, it contains a lot of questions and indicates answers at the same time. It involves the beauty of what art once was while trying to give answers to our spirit and our inner calm."
"Don't try to understand my art with your mind. Feel it with your hear and use your imagination."

Captivating, calming , relaxing to watch. Like watching distant rains and waterfalls. Most landscapes made from falling sands look like a painstaking time- consuming seasoned artist's work. I use it for patient to relax and center themselves.
The Ballerina is a stunning work and looks spectacular in my home. Construction is very high quality and it is mesmerizing to watch...I love seeing the varieties of sand picture that it produces! Great conversation piece too...my guests are always fascinated by it.
