Whether you visit in the dead of winter or middle of summer, Higgins Lake is one of the most picturesque sites in Michigan. The lake is known for its deep, vibrant blue waters and is named for Sylvester Higgins, the first chief of topography of the Michigan Geological Survey. The lake is a mecca for fishing, boating, swimming, and so much more among its twenty-one miles of shorelines.
Our lake art of Higgins Lake provides a beautiful look at the topography of the lake and surrounding area. Using a bathymetric chart, an artist intricately laser cuts pieces of Baltic birch into layers that replicate the natural depth of the lake’s shoreline. Each piece is then hand-stained, and significant points of interest, roads, and water depths are etched into the map’s surface. The entire wood lake is completed with a custom-sized solid wood frame and acrylic glass sheet to give this piece its one-of-a-kind look.
