One of my most valued possessions during my childhood was a globe that sat on a table next to my bed. I spent countless hours traveling around the world on that globe imagining all of the places that I would visit. To this day, I am enamored of globes and maps. I can still spend hours daydreaming about my next travels.
So, it will come as no surprise that I swooned when I ran across the handmade globes by London-based cartographer/ceramicist Loraine Rutt. Her porcelain, ceramic, and wood creations are absolutely amazing. You can see more on her website The Little Globe Co, but here are some fine examples of her work.
