BoeTech

Posted in anatomy, geek, products, wish list with tags , , , on December 17, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

BoeTech has a selection of dynamite anatomical (and other geektacular) cookie cutters that I would love to use for next year’s holiday cookie batches. I don’t care if they’re not gingerbread men and snowflakes! Who wouldn’t want these cookies?

Of course, these are perfect for any time of year. Personally, I think the hearts make a great wedding cookie…if the wedding indeed has cookies (and I’m aware not all weddings do, but in my ideal world there are cookies everywhere).

These would be my reward for a loved one who comes up with a brilliant idea.

Mini Spinal Hiatus

I recently returned from the hospital after having an outpatient procedure for the damaged, pained nerves at the base of my spine. Resting up today, but hope to be posting tomorrow!

Anatomy of Digestion Plates

Posted in anatomy, craft, home, products with tags , , , on December 8, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

At first glance they appear to be trendy, artistically decorated china, but these Anatomy of Digestion Plates are essentially “anatomically correct.”

Anatomy_Boutique_Anatomy_of_Digestion_Set_4_plates

This unique range of fine china illustrates the anatomy and histology of the digestive system in graphic black and white with hand gilded detail.
The range portrays the intricate anatomical pattern and detail from the teeth to the stomach, intestine and liver.

Each plate is carefully handmade (and there is also a series of matching cups and saucers at the Morbid Anatomy Gift Shop).

I’ve always been fascinated by “visible” anatomy models. I finally have a kit, waiting to be built (it’s a real labor of love, as all the organs and parts are white and must be hand painted!). But I look forward to it. Here’s a classic:

Maybe it’s just me, but not once in my life have I thought I’d like to “relax” by having my breasts vibrate.

If you want to feel like a rainbow threw up on your bed, I’ve got the sheets for you! The lollipop (and satisfied smile) really makes this image.

This is a real book. Can you image, even in your wildest dreams, a more romantic title? Nevermind the fact that he appears to be strangling her.

Wow. Ads have come a long way. Now they only imply that people hate the sight of you.

Yes, please.

Most of us probably walk around having no idea how adorable baby llamas are. Now you know.

Karine Jollet: Anatomical Fabric Sculptures

Posted in anatomy, craft, sculpture with tags , , on November 6, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Karine Jollet creates amazing fabric sculptures, many of which are anatomical.

AppleMark

In her own words:
Fabrics are materials that came naturally to me as an analogy to our own biological tissues: bones, fibers, crystals… I start with old bed sheets and shirts, embroidered handkerchiefs and second-hand fabrics that I cut up, put the fragments together, pad them and then sew them by hand. In this way I reconstruct different body parts (arms, legs, heads) and several organs and bone structures.

AppleMark

Observing anatomy fills me with wonder and respect. In my eyes, there is nothing morbid in anatomy; I can only see beauty and the wonderful complexity of forms and of vital functions.

AppleMark

My sculptures are white to remind us of an invisible universe, far away from our own world, a dimension of unity and purity. White allows me also to connect all sculptures among themselves, to create a line of connection beyond the singularity of each work and recreate the complexity of the universe they remind of.

AppleMark

I love the idea of using household fabrics to construct models of human anatomy. She does a beautiful job, managing to balance the visible seams of the fabric with the precise design of bones and organs.

I’m in a rush today, and unfortunately do not have time to write the image commentary (which I so thoroughly enjoy) so feel free to chime in!

Halloween Countdown: Williams-Sonoma Skellie Toile

Posted in anatomy, decoration, halloween, skulls and skeletons with tags , , , , on October 13, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

The Williams-Sonoma Skellie Toile collection is reminiscent of vintage anatomical textbook illustrations.

Given my predilection for anything that makes me feel as if I’m either in a museum or studying something that belongs in a museum…I’d give these items a spot in my home all year long.

Now this is an apron I could cook in.
