The Semi Human Delft Blue Marks a Revolution in Delftware Pottery

Immortal human cells are the main component of these Delftware vases. Needless to say, the design process is striking. The project is headed by Biomedical Engineering professor Dr. Patricia Dankers and her Ph.D. candidate Dan Jing Wu.

Located in the labs of the Technology University in Eindhoven, the duo scans the structure of a physical Delftware. The shapes are later printed out of a biodegradable polymer, on the surface of which the immortal human cells are grown. The tissue constitutes of HeLa cells, specifically, which have predominant use in scientific research.

The vases display original designs by Dutch-Chinese artist Hongjie Yang. Although the project is quite obscure, it can also signal toward a future where immortal human cells are systematically used for manufacturing purposes.
