Wooden Desktop Relief Maps

culmor3 web

These are our most popular relief maps and make particularly nice gifts. We hand select our wood and then orientate it so that the grain has a contour line effect. They come mounted on slab of Lakeland slate with the name of the area/peak engraved onto it.

We hope to shortly have an online shop with photos and videos of the complete range. Here is a list of the areas to be offered as part of this stock range.

Larger Bespoke Relief Maps


In addition to our two popular ranges above, we also offer larger bespoke relief maps for either wall hanging or plinth/table display. Some of these are for individuals to display in their homes but more frequently they are commissions from businesses wanting to help their customers interpret a landscape that has particular importance to them.

We offer these larger relief maps in both wood and cast materials such as metal and ceramic/stone.

Case Study – Lakes Distillery Bronze cast

We were approached by the newly developed Lakes Distillery at Bassenthwaite, Cumbria to deliver a bespoke relief map for their distillery tour. The relief map was to be of a material that could withstand the public environment of a visitor centre and the potential wear of constant touching (the reliefs are very tactile). The relief map was to show their water catchment area in the Lake District fells and to sit on a plinth in the visitor centre of the distillery.
After initial consultation we settled on a round relief of 90cm diameter to be cast in bronze resin. The key area of interest was the river Derwent catchment which starts high up near Scafell Pike and runs down through Borrowdale, into Derwentwater, then on through Bassenthwaite before passing the Lakes Distillery on its way to the sea at the Cumbrian coast.

Using our unique processes we created a digital elevation model (DEM) that showed the river Derwent system as a distinct channel in the landscape, to stand out against the mountains and lakes of the area.

This pic shows the master form with the channel of the river Derwent visible in the bottom half of the shot.

After carving a master that required over 100hrs precision machining, I cast a silicone rubber mould before casting the bronze resin relief. Finally, I engraved the logo of the distillery onto the relief in the position where the distillery is sited. The relief map around 4 months to deliver from initial conception to installation.

Here is a pic of the bronze resin cast on my workbench prior to installation at the distillery.
