Loraine Rutt is an explorer and a cartographer who went from ordnance maps to mapping the moon. She creates porcelain globes and maps to challenge our perception of the world.
Inspired by Charles Booth London Poverty Maps, she has created porcelain maps highlighting little known (or conveniently ignored) facts about life in London.
Nothing takes the mind further away from the daily humdrum than a fantastically decorated world globe, with miniature scale mountains, sinuous ocean currents, and latitude and longitude marked so we can plan our adventures.
And why stop at the earth? Let’s reach for the moon and the stars.
Loraine Rutt welcomes us in her garden studio to share her passion for maps, travels, social justice. She will demonstrate a few of the many steps required to create her miniature worlds.
