Glass katydid

Glass_katydid Last night the Harvard Museum of Natural History held an event to celebrate a new book on Gorongosa by E.O. Wilson and yours truly, and the opening of a photo exhibit highlighting the park’s biological richness. During the evening I met a talented glass sculptor, Wesley Fleming. Turned out that Wesley is yet another artist who uses my photos to inspire his creations. He presented me with a beautiful glass katydid, which he designed based on the photos from one of my books. (Incidentally, a while ago I wrote about a real life glass katydid.)

Please visit Wesley’s website and marvel at his incredible glass sculptures.

  1. Wow, that’s pretty impressive to be able to make that out of glass. I’d be afraid of touching it for fear of breaking the antennae. What size is it?
