Deadly yet Beautiful


"Just because micro-organisms can make us seriously ill doesn’t mean they can’t be beautiful" ~ John Coulthart

True. Just look at these glass microbiology by Luke Jerram which are currently on display at the Smithfield Gallery, London, until October 9th.

The sculptures were designed in consultation with virologists from the University of Bristol using a combination of different scientific photographs and models. They were made in collaboration with glassblowers Kim George, Brian Jones and Norman Veitch.
