Plymouth & Launceston ("Off the Map" collection)

£245.00 GBP

Made from an Ordnance Survey map of Plymouth & Launceston, this unique paper sculpture will make an elegant present for anyone who loves the area!

Making this paper form involved hand-cutting strips, folding each one lengthways, and bias-plaiting them in a traditional technique used worldwide, from Scandinavian birch-bark baskets to Caribbean coconut-palm hats. 

The resulting piece highlights the shorelines, and the contours of the land. There are glimpses of place names, of roads and rivers, and in some areas the sea holds sway over the land. 

A one-off handmade piece.

FREE POSTAGE & PACKING to UK addresses; for anywhere outside the UK please contact me and I will let you know the shipping cost for a particular item before you make your purchase. I'm afraid I can't guarantee next-day delivery in the UK as our rural post office is open only certain days of the week (and our Highland post takes an extra day), but items will be sent Special Delivery and posted out within the week.
