The Painstaking Process of Handcrafted Artisan Globes

Bellerby & Co. Globemakers is a London-based studio that specializes in handmade globes. Founded in 2008 by Peter Bellerby after struggling to find a quality globe, Bellerby’s is now one of only two workshops in the world making handcrafted, artisan globes.

The process includes hand painting individual sections, soaking them, and then stretching them onto the surface. Apparently it takes about six months to learn how to do it properly.

More images of the beautiful (and painstaking) process of globe-making below!

        Thanks Jeff, just the ones that do have credits written in. They are under the photos like (photo by Tom Bunning). It’s only about 5 of them, the rest are mine personally so they are ok without. Cheers!
