This Personalised Map Timber Artwork is created using beautifully detailed Ordnance Survey map data printed onto a square of sustainable sourced birch ply wood.
The map can be centred on any location in England, Scotland and Wales. You could choose the location of a holiday, honeymoon or wedding, or where you live. It is a perfect present to remember a special place. A very thoughtful and truly unique gift.
The print technique I use to make my timber map prints works best with black and white images, giving the artwork a gorgeous timeless look. All the birch plywood I use is from sustainable sources - wood grain shows through the printed image to enhance the beauty of the map.
The natural variations of colour and grain add to the character of the handmade nature of the item, making each map a truly unique ‘one off’.
You can choose to have the wood colour left as it is or to be given a light whitewash of paint before printing. The whitewash gives the finished article a brighter appearance as there is more contrast between the background and the map print.
This item is small enough to stand on a shelf or mantelpiece 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 or black wood profile. You may prefer this as it gives the artwork a more contemporary style. Simply select Framing via the options menu when placing your order.
Ordering is simple: Once you have decided on a location for your map simply enter the details in the Location box to place the order. Each map varies but as a general rule the maps cover an area of 1.5km x 1.5km.
Materials used: Birch Plywood, copy of map, acrylic paint, acrylic medium, matt varnish, metal hanger.
