Corning Museum of Glass

Last night National Public Radio aired a piece about fantastic glass botanicals and the occasional zoological item sent to the Cornin Museum of Glass from Harvard University. The story behind these magnificent pieces created by glass makers Leopold Blaschka and his son Rudolf is well worth the read, but if you don't have the time then just a quick tour of the photographs is well worth it.

Yes, I know, this isn't polymer clay, but neither was my last post. Besides, my muse is totally content drooling over these beauties, so I'm content letting her. I consider this kind of drooling educational and inspirational.

Ano Nymous striketh again.

The glass doth move me
like a flower petal
opening as quickly as the spring will allow
So real of life's spirit
One wonders just, how...
The makers of such beauty cross over and see
Three sides of life,
As it is, as it was
And as it could be.
So thank any artists
Who dabble in their medium.
For they stir new life into us all
And make flee
What would be
Tedium.
