When eggs tell jokes, are they called yolks?

After a hard weeks work we are nearing completion on our Egg Globe for The Big Egg Hunt 2014 in New York.

Can’t wait to see how New York compares to years past in London..

The Globemaker Vimeo Spreads Around The World!

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. MagazineDevour.comThe Worlds Best EverThosewhomake.com, South Africa’s Cherry FlavaThe Documentary NetworkMental FlossArtnau, 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.

Dubbed! Il Fascino Peculiare Dei Mappamondi

We had a little visit at the studio from RSI La 1 and the great Head of Map Collections – Peter Barber from The British Library – to talk about what they dubbed…. the peculiar charm of globes.

Sneak Peek :: The Big Egg Hunt :: New York City :: Easter 2014

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.

The eggs sold at auction raise a lot of money for Action for Children – and The Elephant Family.

Check out http://www.thebigegghunt.co.uk/ – and we will update you again with details in the new year!

Globemakers TV Debut

Check out our Curve globe from the 80 Series, which was requested on set with none other than the legendary Sir David Attenborough on the Alan Titchmarsh show on ITV (A UK chat show).  You can really see the size and scale of the piece sitting next to the two gents. And by the way, how amazing is Sir DA? We just want him to be our adopted grandad, and tell us stories for hours.  Wonder if he can be swayed with globe bribes….Image

New Year, New Cheer!

From a frosty London studio, crammed with radiators and heaters we write our first blog post of the year. Festivities seem long forgotten now, but we are still eating Christmas cake and a few left over chocolates here at the globemakers, and the weather certainly reflects the wintery mood – it’s set to snow all weekend, much to the excitement of Meredith our in-house artist who wants to build a snowman on our roof.

We’re very excited to say that 2013 has so far been a busy one. Plentiful orders are keeping us busy, with grand new globe plans to be unveiled in the near future. Keep your eyes peeled!

In the meanwhile you can see our artist edition globes as we have just added them to the site.  They are truly beautiful pieces, and absolutely stunning up close, when you can really  appreciate the craftsmanship and detail. See more photos here.

One of our new year’s resolutions is to write a blog update every 2 weeks.  As well as to drink red wine by the fire in the winter, white wine in the sunshine in the summer, and a nice hearty beer in the autumn.  It’s going to be a good year!  See you in a few weeks. x
