Art Project Brainstorming?

Asked by PriceisRightx26 (1258points) July 6th, 2016

Making a ceramic tea set, and I’ve decided to make the teapot an anatomically correct heart and the rest of the items will be some variation of apothecary jars. I need help deciding what to write on them accordingly: 2 tea cups, 1 creamer, and 1 sugar jar. Would like to stick with the antique-y theme and would prefer something clever/related to the contents.

There also needs to be a tray, if anyone has some recommendations for that.

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like you have four objects. The heart has four chambers. Maybe inscribe the name of each chamber on one of each?...Got nothing for the tray.Maybe a pool of blood?

A stainless instrument tray from the OR.

I would stick to old medicines (poisons). Laudanum. Red mercury sulfide. Leeches. Cocaine drops. The tray could look like something Gothic /Victorian.

@cazzie I like where your mind is at; kind of what I’m goaling towards.

For some reason I have it in my mind that cyanide is related to sweetness—can anyone confirm?

@Espiritus_Corvus Surgical tray was also my initial thought, but unfortunately I don’t think we have a glaze that would make for a suitable color :\

@cazzie Yeah, or Steampunk.

I think cyanide smells like marachino cherries. Like sweet almond, is that right?

cazzie's avatar

Bitter almond. I was wrong.

Right now I’m sort of obsessed with those porcelain hands that stand on their wrists? Or just lay on a dresser offering to hold your jewellery. You know the ones? Something about their delicately disembodied beauty.
