Santa Barbara, CA
Jutting out from the curvy Californian coastline, Santa Barbara embraces the essence of 'The American Riviera'. Nestled between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, this beachside haven is famed for its stunning mountains rolling into blue waters. Thanks to its warm mediterranean-esque climate, locals and tourists alike make the most of the seaside lifestyle by navigating surfboards, SUPs, kayaks, sailboats and fishing rods, as well as seasonal whale-watching tour boats. This 3D wooden contour map highlights the beauty of the sealife-rich Santa Barbara Channel, as well as local landmarks such as the Santa Barbara Harbor, Stearns Wharf and Point Castillo.
The map depicts detailed bathymetric data (“topography of the water”). Made from 8 layers of 1/16" plywood, each layer represents 470ft of water depth. Each map will be unique due to the individual grain of the wood. They are all handmade with great care and attention to detail.
