Harvard's Glass Flowers

Glass Flowers # 1, originally uploaded by cienne45.

This weekend I will finally get to see first hand Harvard's famed glass flowers collection. Created by Bohemian glass artists Leopold and Rudolph Blaschka, the massive collection is maintained at Harvard's Museum of Natural History.

More info on the Blaschka's and the collection is here in the Journal of of Antiques and Collectibles. The collection has been recently restored, and the exhibit reopened.

I'll definitely be bringing my camera.
