Incredible Art [of the Week]

My artwork is based on the lovely forms in nature that can be viewed under a microscope. Having found another artist that accomplishes something similar in such a beautiful way, I just have to share.

Luke Jerram is an insanely talented glass artist who draws his inspiration from microbiology, mainly viruses. The results are nothing short of extraordinary. Take his sculpture of the H1N1 Virus for example. He took this dangerous virus and created something beautiful.

Same thing goes for his sculpture of HIV, a very powerful piece. In his words: "The sculptures of HIV were made as objects to hold, to contemplate the impact of the disease upon humanity."

Absolutely gorgeous work. Please check out the rest of his gallery here.
