“This planet Earth is a special and unique place. It is clear that humans are having a significant influence on the health of this planet. My hope is that my work will motivate people to consider these issues.”

 

Ever since I can remember I have held a fascination for maps and globes. This interest, combined with my training as a traditional gilder and designer has culminated in the creation of these unique, hand crafted globes and maps.
 

My artworks are both abstract and familiar, showing recognisable land forms without the usual clutter of boarders and divisions we normally enforce on the land.

 

The hemispheres and globes are hand-made in spun aluminium or steel. Every artwork is personally crafted in my private studio. The level of detail and accuracy I achieve can only be realised through many hours of hand crafting by a skilled artisan. The end result is a unique and beautiful artwork which over time will continue to patina and age as the land itself does.
