About the globemaker

globemaker Mark Jeffery

I’ve always wanted a globe as an elegant, inspiring focus in my home. Yet the globes I find in stores are made of plastic and cheaply printed in gaudy colours: far from elegant, far from inspiring.

I want to change that. I’m on a quest to carve beautiful globes from fine hardwood, with the continents rising from the oceans and the mountains from the plains in exquisite three-dimensional relief.
