Exquisite Glass Insects

A comment left on this blog last week alerted me to the sublime glasswork of artist Wesley Fleming.  Wow. Not only are the pieces aesthetically stunning, they are also largely anatomically accurate.  Legs attached to the right spots, tarsal segments counted out, tibial spurs in place.

If you have a few minutes, do yourself a favor and visit Fleming’s gallery.

    These are so amazing! I have such respect for artists that can create lifelike things out of glass. Wowzer.
