Increíble Empresa que hace Globos Terráqueos Artesanalmente

La empresa Bellerby & Co realiza estos increíbles globos terráqueos de modo artesanal, ubicada en Stoke Newington, Londres, Inglaterra, es de las pocas empresas que realizan este tipo de trabajo.

Este lugar mágico nació de la necesidad personal de su fundador Peter Bellerb, quien deseaba reglar un globo terráqueo con motivo del  cumpleaños 80 de su padre, pero no encontraba nada que se ajustara a lo que él deseaba (unos eran muy costosos, otros muy frágiles, otros no tenían el tamaño deseado, etc…) Insatisfecho con todo lo que había en el mercado, decidió hacer el suyo propio.

Desde entonces, Peter y su equipo han creado cientos de los globos del planeta, y cada uno lo realizan de modo personalizado y meticulosamente pintados a mano, para luego enviárselos a sus clientes por todo el mundo.

Veamos algunas imágenes de sus espectaculares globos, dentro de los cuales se incluyen también un globo celeste de constelaciones. Y otros que indican La Ruta de la Seda que era una antigua red de rutas comerciales, establecida formalmente durante la dinastía Han de China, que unía las regiones del mundo antiguo en el comercio entre 130 AC – 1453 DC.

Had you guys ever heard of the career of a Globemaker before you found our account? . We asked Jon why he wanted to be a Globemaker, “It wasn’t a career I’d ever considered before – or was even aware of. But when I saw an apprenticeship advertised at an anonymous globemakers it had me engrossed. Representing the world precisely and with artistic finesse really appealed to the skills I valued and wanted to develop. Creating an object that is both beautiful and functional, which respects and builds upon centuries of tradition, makes it an amazing craft to be a part of.” . What do you have in your mind when you tackle detailed works on a globe? . “It’s a mediative practice almost, it requires a lot of concentration.” . What are some challenging parts when you work on small globes, and on large globes? . “Every size globes comes with its own sets of challenges, they all require a different process and set of skills, so many of the makers specialise in one size. The 127cm Churchill requires Jon and Leo to lay each gore together.” . What kind of background does everyone have? Do any of you have a background as a globe maker before working for Bellerby & Co? . “Design & engineering, conservation, 3d design, one of our painters was in fashion design and the other painters were watercolour artists while doing various other jobs. A person should be passionate about crafting and making things themselves. They are usually the type of people who were making when they were young as a hobby and have an Etsy shop up and running before they come on the team. The type of person when something breaks in their home they want to figure out how to fix it or someone who sees something they like in a magazine and goes home to create their own version of it. They have to be passionate about working with their hands, patient, and stubborn. You have to have an amazing attention to detail and very nimble fingers.” . 127cm Churchill in Prussian Blue.
