Farlow's Scientific Glassblowing

Head of the Glass

Scientific glassblowers prove that the body is indeed a work of art.

Courtesy of our friends at Wired, we discovered the most beautiful intersection of art and science in recent memory: Anatomically correct replicas of the human body, detailing the intricacies of the heart, brain and every other assortment of arteries, capillaries, tissues and blood vessels. Created by Gary Farlow and his Farlow's Scientific Glassblowing, the models are intended for use by the medical industry, but taken individually, each looks like it's very own masterpiece of glass.
