Glass Creatures of the Sea

25 November, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Created in the 1800’s by the father and son team of Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka, the glass models of invertebrates housed at the Grant Museum are a unique blend of art, science and craftsmanship. Join Natural History Museum Curator Miranda Lowe and scientific glassblower Stephen Ramsey as they explore the importance and use of these scientifically accurate and incredibly beautiful models. In a live glass-blowing demonstration we’ll uncover some of the glass making techniques used to create these intricate pieces of glass over 100 years ago.
