James Sun - FallingInSand

Our Story

Welcome to FallingInSand, an online art studio that turns customers' favourite and most beloved images & photographs into amazing sand art gifts in glass containers.

Our story began back in 2018 when our artist Jianpeng Sun (James) Chef Design Officer of FallingIn Media Corp.  began to showcase his unique form of artwork on Tiktok. Rather than making 2D sand art for commercial purposes, James's devoted to letting treasures handed down not only for luxury art but people's everyday life.

It was in this belief that he decided to attempt to make his first sand artwork into glass bottles as a beautiful and useful decoration. The first artwork wasn’t perfect but having ignited the spark of what would become FallingInSand.
