Where form meets function

Filmmakers Charles Arran Busk and Jamie McGregor Smith pay a visit to Peter Bellerby at his studio in Stoke Newington, London, to his work witness first hand. Being one of only two of the last traditional globe-makers, it’s fair to say that attention to detail is everything, each globe hand made and hand sculpted. Peter was initially inspired to create following an unsuccessful search for a traditional globe for his father. Taking the initiative, he went on to start his own company in 2008, Bellerby and Co. Globemakers. Their intricate, carefully crafted work has been featured in numerous hollywood blockbusters including ‘The Great Gatsby’ and has featured in National Geographic exhibitions. Check out the mini documentary and witness the astonishing process below.
