Sensory Play Tools | Small Sand Sphere | Penta Design
Can be used as a supportive tool in occupational therapy to develop fine motor skills in the hands, but anyone can enjoy the multi-sensory experience of rolling the sphere through sand to promote relaxation. Mix and match our spheres and sand trays to create a calm down space in your living room or on your desktop. Carefully hand cast in cement, the Penta sphere is a dodecahedron of unique, concentric pentagons. Its bold angles create strong, dramatic sand patterns. A math lover's delight.
Each Olander Earthworks sand sphere is hand-cast from our original designs in cement & individually pigmented by our small team of artists. The sphere design allows for continuous rolling or stamping and works best with a fine grade of sand. Our spheres are made out of cement, not that cheap polyresin material you sometimes see with lightweight garden statues. They have a nice weight in the hand, which adds to your sensory experience. Check out our sphere packages for curated combinations, or pick up a bag or two of sand to accompany your sphere.
We take delight in the subtle variations of each sphere. Expect the sculptures you receive to have unique characteristics in surface color and saturation that may differ slightly from the images above. Because they are cast from a mold, there are sometimes casting lines and small bubbles, which give each piece its own individual attributes. We closely inspect each piece for our standard of quality before it goes out the door.
