Loraine Rutt

Combining cartographers’ exactitude with nuanced landscape interpretation Loraine Rutt works primarily in porcelain. Aka The Little Globe Co, her pieces record human interactions with place, from hyper-local geography to lunar cartography collaborations with Apollo 15 Astronaut Col Al Worden.

As well as making pieces that question how map design can frame our world view, she is also currently relaunching the 200 year old company Georama. Known for their physical relief terrestrial globes, and illuminated celestial globes this heritage brand is getting a 21st century refresh. Her studio are painstakingly updating the hand drawn original globe artwork and incorporating the latest Lidar and GIS mapping to make exquisite contemporary globes.  Visit the studio to see an exhibition of design work in progress, a set of 1952 traditional hand drawn colour separations for globe gore printing, and new ceramic works for sale.
