Virus billiards

An old bar game of billiards transformed by spiky white ceramic viruses.  These pieces are inspired by viral forms but also the fragile beauty of underwater coral. The one red piece that sits on its own definitely found its inspiration there.

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.

I am intending to turn all my viral work into one mad viral laboratory. Nearly finished making them.  Just  watch this space……

  1. A supportive comment, as ever. Thank you for that. I am now virtually at the end of my viral journey and quite glad to be getting there. I am hoping to bring all the viral work together under the umbrella of a strange laboratory installation. Let’s see how that goes.
