This Valentines Day, London will be playing host to romantic pop up with a twist – every single one of the gifts, cards or cakes on sale will be based on an anatomically correct heart. It is a venture from Miss Cakehead & Medical Illustrator Emily Evans.
The shop will feature a wide range of gifts for those who like their romance with an anatomical twist; around 30 of the the finest arts, crafts and cake makers having been commissioned for the project. Beautiful anatomical heart inspired pieces from jewellery, art prints, cards, embroidery, ceramics to cake, chocloate and anatomical flowers. Saying it with hearts and flowers has never been so scientific!

These fantastic molecular charms by Scientist-turned-artist Raven Hanna have caused quite a storm of late. Being mentioned on a few social media sites has lead to her etsy shop being completely sold out! (which is brilliant).
Here’s some words on her inspiration for the pieces:
“While reading about the science of mood and emotions, I noticed that the same neurotransmitter chemicals kept coming up again and again. It is the different combinations of the mainly the same chemical players that gives us the full spectrum of feelings.
[the pieces] come with six different neurotransmitter charms that you can clip on and off to match you mood (or what you’d prefer your mood to be).
acetylcholine – learning, memory, dreaming
dopamine – love, pleasure, drive
GABA – general relaxant
glutamate – general stimulant
norepinephrine – focus, drive
serotonin – happiness, relaxation, satisfaction”

Jewellery student Jade Dumrath designed a ring with a contemporary take on an anatomical heart.
“This silver, abstract, heart inspired ring is comfortable and creates a little sound… This Ring assignment was very open. The only requirements were to have at least three solder seams…. I hope to add red and blue resin to coat the insides of the tubes, replicating the red and blue sides of the heart.”
