LICENSE PLATE MAPS


License Plate Map - Mounted Style
 

Aaron's signature piece.  A large map of the United States created with license plates which are cut into the shape of their particular state and mounted on a heavy cedar wood background. Alaska and Hawaii are presented as satellite pieces on separate small cedar wood pieces.  This piece adds "wow" to a wall. How impressive is Aaron's signature map?  The Smithsonian in Washington DC has displayed this famous work of Aaron's since 2005.

ITEM: AFMAP01    Aaron Foster XL Mounted Map

Aaron Foster:        About the Artist

Price:  $3,900        Click Here to Buy Online 

Weight:    About 54 lbs.

Mounting:  Two metal "D" rings attached to the backside of the map for hanging on a wall.

Wood Type:  Rough cedar. 

Wood Dimensions:  This piece measures 62 x 40 inches.  The horizontal wood is half an inch thick cedar planking. The vertical boards holding the piece together are also half an inch thick, so the piece sits about 1/2 inch off the wall.

Wood Treatment: The cedar wood is first painted black.  After drying, a second coat of paint is applied to create a barn red color.  The wood is then hand-sanded to let some of the black color show through on the wood.  The next step is to wax the wood, which softens the color and results in an aged look.  Most customers choose the barn red color, as shown above.  A few clients have selected blue or green wood backgrounds.  A custom wood color may be specified for an additional $25.

 License Plate Map - Cutout Style


Created by Aaron Foster

Aaron's minimalist Map-ter-piece.  In this presentation, Aaron has created a large map of the United States with license plates which are cut into the shape of their particular state.  Only a slight edge of the wood backing is visible, as this piece is designed to universally blend onto any wall or surface, creating a 3-dimensional floating impression of the map.

Photos from our happy customers:


Jon selected Barn Red as the background color of his map. The map creates a dramatic  focal point above the fireplace in his spacious cabin retreat.  Very nice!

Pam requested a custom color, Roasted Sesame Seed, to compliment the earthy tones in her brick wall.  "I love the map.  It's very cool at night, too, when the lighter license plates shine."
