    Star Map

    All year round star map hand drawn for the Northern Hemisphere. This simple but detailed print shows what is visible in the night sky all year round. The night sky arcs over us from dusk to dawn, drawing lines and pathways in it's wake. We have used this information to better understand our place in the universe. Stars, Planets and constellations were named and tracked by our early ancestors. In the not so distant past everyone and even small children would have been able to read the stars to attain direction and orientation. Whether you want to find true north or just enjoy star gazing, the night sky is a reminder that we are so small and so much is still a mystery.

    Native Circles are a set of simple illustrations that create space for nature connection and self reflection in our living space. Native Circles are now available as an interactive wooden wheel that can be placed on a table or mounted on the wall.

    It is recommended but not essential to purchase your wheel with the specially designed wooden stand. This allows you to interact with the wheel by turning it with the changing season or cycle. Each stand has space for 3 wheels allowing you to build up a collection of your favourite cycles.

    Slow down to check in on the moon phases or reflect on the seasonal changes around you. These cycles can offer us perspective, flow and a sense of grounding in the world around us.

    Think of them as a field guide to a simpler life more connected with the wonder of the natural world.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Custom and personalised orders

    I'm really happy to discuss possibilities for custom or personalised orders. Wether it be a message to a particular person on a limited edition print or something more complex. Get in touch and we can try and work something out (-:

    Wholesale availability

    Not yet an option but could be looked into if there was a certain demand. Get in touch and lets talk.

    Care instructions

    Limited edition prints: definitely best to get them professionally framed, or buy a A3 size frame for them yourself. I can offer a bespoke framing service for those within Ireland and parts of the UK.
    Birchwood Wheels: these are designed to be handled. I see them being taken of the stand regularly, being shown to kids, played, used in a yoga studio- whatever. So I have designed them to be pretty robust. They are on 4mm Birch Plywood, and have been sealed with a light coat of matte varnish. So they are designed to be used and handled but they should be treated with care also.

    Sizing details

    Limited Edition prints are on SRA3 Paper 450mm x 320mm.

    Birch Wood wheels are 4mm thick and 300mm diameter

    Sycamore Stands are 30 x 100 x 100mm

    Gift wrapping and packaging

    I wrap usually in a delicate uncoloured recycled tissue paper followed by recycled brown paper or something similar. I use natural flax twine of recycled coloured string. I include a recycled luggage tag and everything is stamped with the Native Circles stamp.
    All my gift wrap, packaging and postage materials sourced from Klee Paper in Dublin which provides all recycled materials and stationary. So rest assured! I worry enough about the environment for the both of us (-:
