"The heart is a reminder for the generally underestimated but essential role health plays in our lives."

That's a quote from Italian designer Liviana Osti, who designed her carafe in the shape of a human heart as part of a tableware challenge given to her and her classmates at Bolzano University by Milan showroom, Paolo C.

As beautiful as it is a bit creepy, the piece, called "Cuore" (the Italian word for heart), is made from Pyrex and is composed of two different, stand-alone forms that nestle together and are designed according to the natural division of ventricles.

Unfortunately, for now, the piece is not being mass produced.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
