John and Charlotte Guptill

Charlotte Guptill was inspired by her love of sailing to incorporate nautical charts into her designs in 2006. In 2009, with the assistance of her then fiancé', John, Charlotte formally launched CHART Metalworks on Custom House Wharf, not far from their home on Portland, Maine's peninsula.

Now, with the help of a talented pack of Maine-based artisans, and sometimes some distraction from their Corgi-Terrier Mix, Riley, the husband and wife team handcraft custom nautical chart and map adornments in their studio on Portland, Maine's working waterfront.

Each unique piece is hand-cast. The chart or map images are hand cut and hand placed. Each piece is topped with a boaters resin creating a natural dome, magnifying the artwork below. collection

      I was a little disappointed with the final product. Fingerprints on the brass and map clarity skewed secondary to glass. After reading other reviews wish I had asked for specific coordinates to be marked in some way.

        I got this gift for my boyfriend for our three year anniversary. I used the exact address of the place where we first met. The first proof looked very modern and I wanted the map to look more like a old school road map, so the artist completely changed it for me and made it perfect. The artist also added a mark indicator (a star) to the exact address. I absolutely love the finished product and I cannot wait to give this gift later this month!

            I was contacted promptly (within a day or two) with the initial proof of my map (Kenmore Square in Boston). I found the map used to be much more modern than I was expecting, so I requested an antique map, more like the sample that is shown on the website. While the second proof did showcase an older map, and it was good for my purposes, it was still not very much like the picture advertised. Although I suppose you can't really fault them; there are probably only so many antique maps to choose from. In the end, my husband appreciated the thoughtful gift, and I would recommend this to anyone seeking something unique. I just might add a few more sample pictures to the website so customers understand the range of what they might receive.

                      This product was the perfect gift for a "young" relationship. Only going together for a few months and it is still an awkward stage when it comes to gifts so this worked perfectly!
