Aeroplanes, Aston Martin & Vintage Adverts

The Geneva Aviation Show (EBACE) is set to take place next week, and we are so excited to announce that our newest globe to the Bellerby Family will make its debut amongst some of the world’s finest aircraft and aviation officials (photo below).

Our new stand is almost a meter high, and boasts a fully rotating, beautiful free spinning 80cm globe. The base itself is made from aluminum by Aston Martin Heritage Engineers and features a sleek, sophisticated design.  The globe, as always is lovingly crafted by hand and finished with beautiful paint washes.

The air show is held at Geneva Palexpo Centre (just next to the Geneva Airport) and plays host to numerous aircraft with representation from all manufacturers, specifically aimed at business aviation.  Sounds so interesting, and is set to be their best year yet!

Other things making us happy this week are our *new* globey stationery, the fantastic Bauhaus show at the Barbican;  planning our exhibition at the Royal Geographic Society, and these adverts by Papert Koenig Lois, which were deemed too “risqué”  in the mid 60s.  Have a lovely week!

The Hunt is Over!

As a big raincloud sits over London, the globe making studio is bustling with activity.

New innovative branding, freshly painted globes, various base designs, inspiring weekend exhibitions and our Globe Egg are cause for excitement this Tuesday morning.

Let’s start with our Globe Egg for the Faberge Big Egg Hunt. As bidding on the eggs ended (Monday 9th April) we were over the moon to see that our globe egg raised a HUGE £11,101 with over 100 bids! All proceeds go to the fantastic causes – charities Action for Children and the Elephant Family.

We are very proud and thankful to everyone who supported us over the Big Egg Hunt journey!

In other news… our beautiful new website is being designed as we speak; with exciting features, a full catalogue of our globes and a peek at our future globe designs.  We have an upcoming globe exhibition at the Royal Geographic Society (more details to follow); commissions from big names in the art world, our apprentices trying out new colours for our desk globes, our craftsmen making giant wooden bases, and have just delivered a globe to a VVIP office in New York City.  Wow.
