Globe Made From Matches By Andy Yoder

Entitled “Early One Morning”, this two year in the making sculpture by American artist Andy Yoder is made by over 300,000 matchsticks creating a world globe measuring 42″ of diameter made with wooden matches, wood, steel, paper and foam.

Andy Yoder’s new sculpture, Early One Morning, is titled after a work by the late Anthony Caro, who was one of the founders of the Triangle Workshop, which Yoder later participated in and credits with greatly boosting his career. The title also references Hurricane Sandy, which is depicted on the globe heading into the East Coast of the United States, which was happening when Yoder first started the sculpture. Yoder explains: “I was interested in the contrast between the havoc the storm wreaked on the ground compared to the silent beauty of the earth from above. That contrast expands to include the tensions, war and strife that divide countries, compared to the smooth, borderless blue marble floating in space.”
