Glass Microbiology by Luke Jerram


SARS Corona Virus by Luke Jerram

Artist Luke Jarram has created glass sculptures of some of the deadliest diseases known to man including HIV, E. Coli and Small Pox.  The incredibly intrincate sculptures challenge both the state of the art in glass sculpting and the ability of scientists to visualize these diseases.  For instance scientists are unable to describe to Jarram how RNA is situated in the Capsid.

Jarram's website includes a video showing how he uses glass blowing techniques to create the sculptures.  The video shows him working on the HIV sculpture.
