Contaminated Plates… Trilobite Glassworks

Trilobite Glassworks is the name of glass artist Jane Hartman’s Etsy shop. She sells a wide range of biology-themed items, from stained glass panels shaped like prehistoric lifeforms (trilobites, among others) to fused glass plates decorated with all kind of infections.
