THE GLOBE COLLECTION
I am a London based artist and globemaker and have created a range of unique and exquisite globes depicting London across 250 years.
Maps, prospects and globes have been used over the centuries to enable people to explain and navigate their way through the world. They record a unique expression of people’s relationship with the ground beneath their feet, their built environment and their place in the universe, providing the modern viewer with a unique visual bridge to a point in history which connects us to the past.
Using traditional globe making techniques from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, I take historical city prospects, maps and celestial gores and transforms them into beautiful objects of contemplation. Specifically designed to be hand held, by placing these globes into the hands of the viewer you are invited to travel back into the past and consider your relationship to time and place.
