Bobby Jaber was a chemistry teacher who was always inspired by art. Now that he’s retired from the classroom, he’s an artist inspired by chemistry.
He molds porcelain clay into molecularly-inspired spheres reminiscent of Buckminsterfullerine (AKA ”C60”), perhaps the most beautiful molecule on Earth. His creations are often symbolic of famous people, places, and moments from the history of science, from Antikythera to Archimedes.
Here’s a short film of the artist at work, by Dave Altizer:
You can see more of Jaber’s chemical creations on his website, Porcelania.
