Early One Morning is more than the average globe. While it serves the same purpose, it does so in a unique and mystifying way. The globe is made of thousands of matchsticks all hand-painted one by one and pieced together to make one of the most intricate globes known to man.

A massive globe like Early One Morning is no easy feat. Using thousands of matchsticks to create anything is hard, but when you also have to paint it accurately enough to represent a globe, it becomes a bit trickier. The matchsticks are attached to foam, cardboard and plywood, giving it its sturdy rounded frame.

The Early One Morning globe will be on display in New York City as part of the PULSE New York Contemporary Art Fair.
