John and Charlotte Guptill

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

          This product is stunning in concept and creation. The artist sent me a proof right away and worked quickly to tailor it to my specifications. The final product was even more exquisite than I'd envisioned, memorializing two very special landmarks in our lives. It will be a lifetime treasure.

            I was nervous about ordering this product, but it turned out great! The map was easy to recognize and my boyfriend was floored (I used a map of campus where he completed his undergrad and master's degree in GIS). The colors do turn out a little different than the proof they send for confirmation- but I think it actually made them better. The only con was the wait time, but of course there has to be one when it's a personalized gift.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Excellent customer service. Once they begin processing your order it is same-day email contact. Very professional.

                  I wanted to find a paper-themed gift for my husband for our first anniversary and these map cufflinks were perfect -- a creative way to make a gift personal and thoughtful (without being sappy). The artist worked with me to find the perfect maps, and the artist and Uncommon Goods also helped me expedite the order at a small extra fee, when I later realized it might not arrive in time. They arrived several days early and he ended up loving them. Thanks very much!
