         Founded in 2013, X-Artifacts pioneers the finest sand artwork with industry-leading quality. The goal in our studio is to uphold wellness by celebrating our relationship with nature. Sand is a calming material connected with leisure, so nearly all our work incorporates sand as a theme. The texture creates an intimate human connection. Aesthetic decisions such as organic contours and chiseled detailing are unique to each piece. These natural forms are highlighted to further distinguish each artwork as one-of-a-kind. The impact of sand is multi-sensory, adding a memorable tactile dimension to the pieces. This material explores ideas of touch, physicality, and presence. The slightly weathered appearance of our X-Artifacts are meant to imply an ancient history, while a modern voice narrates our present moment through captivating imagery.
