This isn’t the first time Jerram has made glass artwork related to the pandemic. In March of last year, he made a sculpture of the novel coronavirus, which causes covid-19. Both sculptures are a part of the series Glass Microbiology, which he’s been working on since 2004. The series aims to contemplate the global impact of each disease it represents.

“By extracting the colour from the imagery and creating jewel-like beautiful sculptures in glass, a complex tension has arisen between the artworks’ beauty and what they represent,” Jerram’s website states.
