Beautiful Bathymetry

How beautiful are these customized lake maps? Made by Lake Art and sold through  The Grommet , these pieces are “the perfect keepsake for decorating your home, cabin, or cottage, Lake Art wooden wall maps feature intricate details of more than 4,000 lakes including shorelines, two colors, and up to eight depth dimensions. Who would’ve thought bathymetry (the study of the depths and shapes of underwater terrain) could be so beautiful.

The laser-cut maps also depict surrounding towns and major roads giving your lake a sense of place and belonging. Each piece is handcrafted from scratch and made to order in Harbor Springs, Michigan. Lake Art leaves no lake unfinished—the framing is exquisite.”

I’m especially impressed with their wall art, like the piece pictured below:

lake-map-art-reefsMaterials: Natural wood; framed in an oak shadow box
Select from the 4,000+ lakes currently available
Lakes are stained a turquoise blue providing beautiful contrast to natural wood color
Depending on the shape of your lake, maps can have between 2 and 8 layers of depth
Depths of lake are notated on descending rungs
Lettering, road maps, and facts laser-etched onto map
Maps feature facts about the lake including lake area and deepest point

The company also makes serving trays, leather-bound notebooks, and cribbage boards!
