Bar billiards and microbe viruses

 

Virus billiards 1

 

A game of bar billiards transformed into spiky white ceramic viruses.  These pieces are inspired by actual viral forms,  but also the fragile beauty of underwater coral. The ceramic pieces represent:

  • Chicken pox

  • Hepatitis CV

  • Measles

  • Herpes

  • Rubella

  • Yellow Fever

  • Mumps

  • HIV

  • Encephalitis

I have also been experimenting with filling chemistry jars with viral shapes. I like the contrast of their sharp fragility with the shiny glass walls of the jars.  In the smaller jar the viruses are almost tipping outside of their protective container.
