A Heart, A Wishbone, and A Bird

Posted by Janet on March 14, 2008

In addition to illustrating science, I’m also a big fan of product design. So I always get excited when I see products that incorporate certain aspects of scientific illustration in them, whether a conscious choice of the designer or not. The picture above–a heart, a wishbone, and a bird, is a series of paperweights by Walteria Living, who apparently also carry the Endangered Species Chocolates. All three paperweights are cast in bronze from the real thing.

    these are lovely…wish they didn’t cost $365 (not that i really ‘need’ paperweights, or a chihuahua night light). nice blog–i found you through the street anatomy site. i thought about trying my hand at medical illustration when i was doing a lot of life drawing in school; we had to draw & label the skeleton and muscle layers from memory, which was a great exercise. i don’t know how much of it i remember now, but i think i could be pretty happy just sitting around and draw bones all day.

    good luck with your new site.
