3D Charts – Latitude Kinsale
Each of our charts can be made for anywhere in the world, based on the maritime chart.
Our 3D Nautical Chart Range
Using Nautical charts of your selected coastline, we create a relief 3D chart showing the various depths and coastline contours. Beautifully framed, the chart is transformed into a timeless piece of art.
Latitude Kinsale specialises in applying the art of decoupage to marine charts for any location in the world. The process involves precision hand-cutting of nautical marine charts on the depth contour lines, assembling onto mount board where they are re-cut and then assembled to create a wonderful 3 dimensional piece of art that is timeless.
Every chart is unique and hand-made.
Each and every piece is unique and entirely made by hand. It has taken several years to perfect the process and the product. The artist Bobby Nash has developed the product range to include Surround lighting, Story boards and even Chart tables for domestic and nautical applications on super yachts.
A nautical chart is attractive because of its presentation, the land is shaped by the sea and it is this shape that is instantly recognisable to all who have an interest for whatever reason, it could be that we live there, we sail on the ocean close by or we simply have fond memories. Whatever the reason, there is a close bond. The nautical chart displays information that is interesting, beautifully presented, uncluttered and is the culmination of years of surveying of both the land and the sea bed which remains mysterious.
The relief chart highlights the depth contours and shows the rugged shape of the land that has been carved by the oceans since time began. Unlike conventional art, the relief chart is relevant and art built into a frame that will be admired today and for centuries to come!
