Bellerby & Co was founded in 2008, “I was looking for a globe to give to my father for his 80th birthday, but I could only find either antique globes that were too expensive, or industrial ones used by students. So I decided to make my own,” Peter explains about how the company started.

Join Peter from his rooftop London atelier, where he and his dynamic team of artisanal globe makers master different steps of the creation process. There are the wood and metalworkers who lovingly create the bases, the sculptors who create the spheres from plaster of Paris, and the cartographers who create the maps, the specialist watercolourists, and those who place the gores onto the spheres.
