Amoeba Love - A New Day

Biology art, science art for the biologist, student, lab worker, or just one of us general nerds who love things like amoebas.

This glass piece depicts and celebrates mitosis in an amoeba, a one-celled organism. The creature duplicates its nucleus, then divides itself into two separate and complete organisms. The process is technically termed the mitotic phase, but is commonly called mitosis.

This is a multi-leveled work with much depth. I started with a mostly-opaque white background, then built up the translucent elements on top. The front surface is highly textured. Clear bits reminiscent of water drops sparkle with changing light.

Amoeba Love - A New Day measures six 1/2 by ten inches (6.5 x 10 cm). The thickness varies between 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) and 5/8 inch (1.6 cm). It weighs about one and a half pounds. Two strong stainless steel loops are embedded in the top for hanging with the included cord.

Amoeba (sometimes amœba or ameba, plural amoebae) is a genus of protozoa that moves by means of pseudopods, and is well-known as a representative unicellular organism. The word amoeba or ameba is variously used to refer to it and its close relatives, now grouped as the Amoebozoa, or to all protozoa that move using pseudopods, otherwise termed amoeboids.

People are naturally curious about the durability of glass in wind. I take extra care with the glass pieces to keep them strong. I have had them out in heavy winds on the Oregon Coast without breakage, and I've gotten no reports over the years of any problem. Of course, glass can break, so I recommend taking them down during high winds. Be sure to hang them securely so they cannot fall of the hook they are hung on, and place them so they won't bang into any hard surfaces, and don't drop them.
If you would like your order sent to a different address than your own, please temporarily change your ship-to address. Otherwise if I need to change the address, there could be additional charges, because shipping is calculated based on location. I am happy to enclose a gift card: just let me know what you would like written on it. I enclose a packing slip with each order which does not include prices.
