Glass Microbiology, Beautiful Glass Sculptures of Deadly Pathogens by Luke Jerram

Glass Microbiology by Luke Jerram

E. coli

Deadly pathogens like E. coli and HIV are rendered in surprisingly beautiful glass sculptures in the series “Glass Microbiology” by artist Luke Jerram. The handmade sculptures are each roughly one million times larger than the pathogens on which they are based—you can see the build process of an HIV sculpture in this video. Jerram has been working on the series since 2004. For more of Jerram’s work, see our previous posts.
