These Heart Teapots are the most involved ones I’ve seen. Not completely sure where the tea pours out from… pot luck I guess

Farlow’s Scientific Glassblowing; ‘Where art meets science’ are the creators of this glass vasculatory system. Intricate arterial systems can be blown form glass into anatomical anastomoses such as the Circle of Willis in the brain. If filled with coloured fluid, they reflect the path of blood flow through the arteries and can assist in medical training.

Ilfracombe in Devon is the most recent recipient of the latest Damien Hirst Sculpture. A 65-feet tall 25-ton bronze statue called Verity which shows a heavily pregnant woman holding a sword has been erected in the seaside town for the next 20 years. Needless to say, it has ruffled the feathers of a few of the locals… perhaps they’ll grow to love it in time.

Paul Yaffe has been designing custom made Harley-Davidson motorcycles since 1984. This ‘Heart Bike‘ was created for Dr. Edward Diethrich, founder and medical director of the Arizona Heart Institute in Phoenix. The $120,000 bike has a tank shaped as a human heart and took two years to complete.

I can find little other information about this picture and artist other than that supplied with it;
“La peritoine utilise comme filtre, sculpture by Lagarrigue.
Image from Le Livre de la Sante by Joseph Handler (Monte Carlo: Andre Sauret, 1967) volume 6: La bouche et les dents. Le systeme digestif. Les reins.”

I’ve seen this image floating around on the internet for a while, and finally discovered who was responsible; Canadian artist Dirk Staschke. I thought I’d feature it for the small minority of people who may not have seen it yet as it’s worth it! The rest of his work is totally worth a look – in his recent works, the cakes & the pastel fruit and birds are amazing.
