Map sculpture is owned and ran day to day by two good friends, Dan Jesse & Ben Fisher. Both Dan & Ben are lovers of the mountains and live just outside The Lake District National Park (Carlisle) Dan lives with his wife and 2 children and is Yorkshire born and bred but came to Cumbria for studies, then never left.
He is an avid snowboarder, mountain biker, runner, road biker, stand up paddle boarder & mountain hiker amongst many other hobbies. His love and passion for mountains was solidified in 2005 when he and his with spend a season in Morzine as chalet hosts in the mountain resort.
Ben is Cumbrian born. He is an avid BASE Jumper, skydiver, mountain biker, stand up paddle boarder and mountain biker. Much like Dan, his love and passion for the mountains was solidified by working a winter season in a beautiful mountain resort called Megeve.
The business was purchased in early 2020 from the former owner and founder, Chris Scammell.
The two run the business from a workshop in a Village just outside Carlisle called Warwick Bridge.
The workshop is a very unique and special location as it is heated and powered by a mixture of renewable technologies such as Hydro Power, Solar Power and Biomass Heating. This means that all products produced by Map Sculpture are as environmentally friendly as possible. We source our wood and materials responsibly to ensure as little impact to the environment as possible. All of our natural wood products can be traced back to the original tree the wood was taken from.
