A chosen section of a printed map has been transferred onto a hand-cut piece of reclaimed timber to create this unique artwork.
I can create this item with the map centered on any location in England, Scotland and Wales only. Simply enter a place name and postcode in the field above when ordering. You could choose the location of a honeymoon or wedding, or where you live. It is perfect to give as a present to remember a special place. A very thoughtful and truly unique gift.
This item is small enough to stand on a shelf or mantlepiece but can also be hung on the wall. It is supplied with a concealed hanger for easy hanging from a picture pin or nail. I also offer this item framed in a simple white wood profile. You may prefer this as it gives the artwork a more contemporary style. Simply select this via the option menu when placing your order.
Each map varies but as a general rule the maps cover an area of 1.5 miles x 1.5 miles so please bear this in mind when specifying the location. Once I have accepted your order, if you have opted to see a prieview, I will send a jpeg of your map for your approval. If you have not received your proof within 48 hours of placing an order please check your email spam folder or log into your account on the notonthehighstreet.com website, go to the 'my orders' section and then click the 'order enquiry' button on the relevant order. The attachment will appear within that discussion page as a link to download.
The technique I use to make my items works best with black and white images which gives the finished article a gorgeous timeless look. I use reclaimed pine boards chosen specifically for their character and eco credentials. Knots and wood grain show through the image to enhance the beauty of the map.
Please note that the wood used varies in colour from dark antique pine to pale blonde pine. The pattern of the grain is also variable, and the number of knots also varies from piece to piece. These natural variations are not seen as a fault as they add to the character of the handmade nature of the item.
The maps that I use to create my products are sourced from Ordnance Survey OS 1:25,000 Explorer Mapping © Crown copyright and database rights 2014. Ordnance Survey License No: 100054681.
