Glass Flowers at Harvard

Tuesday, Dec 18, 2012 9:00a

3,000 amazingly realistic glass models of plants, flowers and fruits, painstakingly handcrafted from 1886 to 1936 by German glass artists, father and son Leopold & Rudolph Blaschka. Created as teaching models for Harvard's botanical museum, the Blaschkas' works allowed students to examine flowering plants from all over the world before the invention of airplanes and color photography. Heirs to a long tradition of glass-working in Bohemia, the Blaschkas had a studio outside of Dresden, Germany.
