We meet Naoshi at a makers / craft market and immediately feel in love with the world she creates in her art. When we saw she makes DIY sand art kits we could imagine you sitting down with a box of our chocolate bonbons, your favorite beverage, some great tunes, and a sand art kit. What a perfect evening!
Pick you favorite design (or try multiple), peel off the stickers, and sprinkle sand to make SUNAE!

Naoshi was born in Iwate, Japan, and currently lives and works in Los Angeles. She works with the medium of sand art known as Sunae in Japanese. Using brightly colored, shiny grains of sand, she visualizes a fantastical world of her own, imbued with a sense of nostalgia. For Naoshi, Sunae is a visual tool to express unique worldviews. In addition to creating her own artworks, Naoshi makes Sunae kits, which are available to the public, and runs workshops in the hope of sharing the joy of using this expressive art form.
