Is it art or cartography? This birch-wood mounted United States map is both! Using a collage of handmade papers, vintage clippings, and original graphite drawings, the map offers a unique take on the many textures of the modern American landscape. Artist Janna Ugone's craft company Ugone and Thomas specializes in lamps and other home accessories, but this archival canvas portrait combines folk art, typography, and interior design to offer an intimate portrait of the multi-hued wallpaper that defines our country today. Hand-made, signed and dated by the artist in Easthampton, Massachusetts from birch-faced poplar, a cotton canvas/poly blend, and zinc-plated d-rings. Made in the USA.
