The Supplement: Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka

Introducing Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka, a father-son pairing from Germany who specialised in hand crafting glass sculptures of  underwater fauna and flora to a remarkably accurate degree.  Like the projects you're working on now, the Blaschka's mixed scientific accuracy with brilliant artistic craftsmanship, creating work which went beyond the category of simply being defined as 'scientific models'. Exquisite stuff! I like the Jellyfish the most...
