Wallpaper* Handmade 2013 Exhibition

Wallpaper* Handmade 2013

We loved heading down to Milan to take part in Wallpaper Magazines annual
show-stopping exhibition during the Salone del Mobile.

We joined the finest artists, designers, craftsmen and manufacturers from across the globe who produce unique furniture, fittings and fashion.

This one of a kind globe was made with Mathias Hahn with a pattern that is similar to the weave of a blanket. The 72 longitude sections and 36 latitude sections generate 2,592 different shades.

Exhibition Week…

Time has flown by at our globemaking studio, is it really 27th September?  If so, in two days time (and I’m sure you’ve all got the date circled in your diary) our exhibition of globes opens at the Royal Geographical Society, and we are so excited to share our collection with the public.

There will be many new mini-globes to paw, spin and play with and even the chance to win one over the two week period, just visit the exhibition to find out more.  The show will also feature beautiful alternative globes, hand painted by select London artists; and the historical Churchill models, which are so impressive up close, standing over 1.5 m tall.

We have constructed a workshop space which will be active for the entire duration of the exhibition, relocating some of our talented globemakers from our studio in North London, so that visitors to the show can follow the process of making the globes, from painting to goring.  We’ve picked the friendliest of the bunch, who won’t mind you having a peek over their shoulder, or asking any questions!

The show will guide you through the art of globemaking, and offer a rare chance to see a wide collection of models and

styles, including the Terrestrial (earthly) and it’s Celestial (heavenly) counterpart, which depicts the mythical astrological figures, and over 3000 stars as seen in the night sky.

Come and see the first ever exhibition of handmade globes to be shown at the Royal Geographical Society; running from this Saturday 29th September to Friday 12th October, open daily from 10am to 5pm, and admission is FREE.  We have also set up a globey giftshop featuring books, maps, bags and postcards for you to take away.  All proceeds from the sales of our Bellerby Brochure are donated to the Elephant Family charity.   More information on our website.  See you there!
