Wesley and I sit down in the Virtual Studio to chat about his journey as a glass artist and how bugs became his main focus. The details achieved in a realistic scale give Wesley’s creations a realism that could be compared to the Blaschka family’s creations of glass specimens made for study at the Harvard Botatincal exhibit.
“One of Harvard University’s most famous treasures is the internationally acclaimed Ware Collection of Blaschka Glass Models of Plants, better known as the “Glass Flowers." This unique collection was made by Leopold (1822-1895) and Rudolf Blaschka (1857-1939), a father and son team of Czech glass artists. Over fifty years, from 1886 through 1936, the Blaschkas produced 4,300 glass models that represent 780 plant species.” https://hmnh.harvard.edu/glass-flowers
