The Ware Collection of Glass Models of Plants exhibition -- “The Glass Flowers”
3,000 amazingly realistic models of plants, flowers and fruits, painstakingly crafted in glass from 1886 to 1936 by German glass artists, father and son Leopold and Rudolph Blaschka. Some 4,000 models were made by just two men, Leopold Blaschka (1822-1895) and his son Rudolph (1857-1939). Heirs to a long tradition of glass-working in Bohemia, they had moved to Germany and established a studio outside of Dresden. 3,200 models are on display in the museum's exhibition. Open 9 to 5 daily.
