Each sphere is hand made from casting plaster. Each globe is made in the time honoured traditional method. 12 paper gore sections are carefully applied to the sphere with starch paste. Once dry the surface is burnished and finished with multiple very thin layers of varnish.

Vanitas paintings flourished in the Netherlands in the early 17th century. With a central theme of ‘Memento Mori’ each contained collections of symbolic objects.

Each globe is unique and comes with a hand cast Jesmonite base.




Made by hand in London.
