Design of the Week: A Sweet Crania Anatomica Filigre

This week’s selection is Joshua Harker’s Crania Anatomica Filigre – but with a difference. 
Harker’s Crania Anatomica Filigre emerged quite a while ago in a rather successful Kickstarter campaign. But this instance of the Crania Anatomica Filigre is a little different: it’s made entirely from Sugar!
It is the same design, but simply rendered in a different material. The folks at 3D Systems, who conveniently recently acquired The Sugar Lab of Los Angeles, thought it would be appropriate to produce the item using their sugar-mojo. 
Visually, the Crania Anatomica Filigre appears the same: a delicate skull shape that has a mysterious feel to it, as if it were recently discovered under a Mayan temple. 
But this one tastes different – although we are in no way suggesting you should attempt to eat any of the non-sugar versions of this amazing piece.
