Glass Flowers at Harvard

Sean MurphyComment

This Saturday a magnificent exhibit is set to reopen at Harvard after an extensive renovation . The exhibit is world famous with pieces that are internationally known as the Ware Collection of Blaschka Glass Models of Plants, the “Glass Flowers." This unique collection of over 4,000 models, representing more than 830 plant species, was  created by glass artisans Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka, a father and son from Dresden, Germany. The commission began with only a few models in 1886 and continued for five decades.
