A Bella Sfera world globe is a timeless showpiece featuring a detailed map of the world engraved into a high lustre stainless steel. Each globe is individually crafted by the Artisan on California’s Central Coast and is a one-of-kind, heirloom quality objet d'art.
Exclusive tools and techniques designed by the Artisan are used to handcraft these fine globes. The process begins with the Artisan's original design incorporating precise world maps and a unique globe concept. The design is transferred to a stainless steel sphere that undergoes a metal removal process to permanently engrave the globe. The globe is then hand finished, numbered and paired with a custom turned pedestal. The result is an unequaled engraved metal world globe.
The globe is just six inches in diameter yet commands attention with its classic colors and contrasting metal finishes that reflect its environment. Not only beautiful in appearance the deep engraving and smooth surfaces offer a pleasing tactical sensation. The globe freely rotates in all directions on a hardwood pedestal that elevates it eight inches overall height.
Custom metal globes can be commissioned to commemorate important events. Perhaps someone is retiring from a military career abroad, your company just successfully launched a global initiative or you just completed an around-the-world yachting adventure. A heirloom quality globe can be made to chronicle milestones in a unique cartographic format. Please Contact the Artisan if you have interest in a custom design.
The Artisan's goal is to create unique, timeless objects that endure for generations. Crafting globes in metal imparts an intrinsic value and durability that ensures they will last. Considering many world globes become collectors items, it's the Artisan's hope these beautiful spheres are treasured today and by future generations.
