Since Vimeo kindly chose us as a Staff Pick and put us on their front page (as well as tweeting their 121,855 followers gasp) the video Peter Bellerby – The Globemaker has spread far and wide. We are up to 35,500 views!! We are humbled by the response and positive feedback.
The short film has been shared on twitter over 100 times. It has been written about by Huh. Magazine, Devour.com, The Worlds Best Ever, Thosewhomake.com, South Africa’s Cherry Flava, The Documentary Network, Mental Floss, Artnau, Little Green Footballs,
Curiosités de Titam (for our French readers), and the brilliantly named Socks on an Octopus in New York to name a few. Wahhay.
Perhaps you have a lesser quality globe that needs a new lease on life? Trade it in for a newer model (ahhemm we can recommend some great ones that don’t fall apart) … but don’t go tossing that old one.
Here are some ideas and overall favourites.
5. Half a globe becomes a genius planter for flowers. Either a hanging basket or else on a base indoor or out.
4. Chalk Board Globes …. imagine the world how you want to. Chalk paint is fun and easy.
3. A jaunty hat.
2. A cheesy sentimental up-cycled gift to a loved one. With or without cliche quote. I’m a fan of mapping out places you’ve been or places you want to go.
1. We love love love these ceiling lamps!! Major want.
We were approached by Cabnine Films a few months ago who produced this really lovely short film.
We had not realised it was available online yet so were excited to stumble upon this morning! Check it out, it is a really beautifully shot film as well as an interesting portrait of Peter Bellerby and the globe-making process.
We are excited again to be part of the Big Egg Hunt. This time it is in one of our very favourite cities … New York!
Progress is already underway at Bellerby & Co and we think it is looking gorgeous.
