Spectacular, framed 3D nautical charts and historic maps

I produce beautifully handcrafted 3D nautical charts and historic maps. My artwork brings the areas to life and creates a spectacular display piece in any room or yacht.

Each piece is individually crafted and hand cut into as many as twelve 3D topographical layers. The work is then carefully framed for display, with optional lighting, bringing a fresh perspective on what lies beneath. If there's a special place for you and your loved ones, contact me to bring it to life in a stunning and unique way!

 

I can produce any nautical chart from around the world

Commissioning your own 3D nautical chart or historic map couldn't be easier! Contact me with your desired location, or view my previous work below for inspiration.

Made in the San Francisco Bay Area, I deliver within the USA and internationally.
