Jim Denevan etches impermanent geometric drawings into California beaches

June 16, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Jim Denevan is a surfer, a sand artist, and a self-taught chef, the man behind the traveling outdoor dining experience Outstanding in the Field. His geometric sand sculptures are made with little more than rakes and sticks and can span miles of North California beaches. The pieces take many hours to create but can often disappear much quicker as the incoming tide gently erases them from earth.
