World Piece technical
Hand made from an old tin globe (1976), comes packaged with a poem about Utopia (that you can read here), signed by the artist (who was also made in 1976).

Pieces vary in size: 7mm x 7mm to 12mm x 12mm approx. (Small defects seen in the highly enlarged images often can't be seen in 'actual size' pieces). 

The pieces are mounted on high quality sterling silver-plated studs. The backs are given two coats of Jewelry Shield lacquer to guard against allergy.

Corners are filed to smooth off any sharpness (these pieces were photographed prior to filing).

Each piece is cut from different parts of the globe – i.e. New Zealand and Zanzibar, Poland and the Bahamas, the South Pole and the Amazon. The concept is: the whole planet is our home; each piece is part of the whole; borders are fictional etc. More on this below.

Some of the Pieces are hard to locate; the colours and names don't always give them away. I think there's beauty in this obscurity but if you're curious to know where your part of the jigsaw fits, you can enjoy exploring the globe and 'Find Your Piece' here (coming soon).
