Glass insect sculptures by Wesley Fleming
Wesley Fleming glass insects
Niche Awards Finalist, 2012 American artist Wesley Fleming makes very intricate insect sculptures. In particular, spiders, scorpions, mantis and grasshopper, bees and wasp figurines, ants and snails. All – made entirely from glass.
Born in Pennsylvania, he spent his days exploring the space beneath logs and rocks studying the shapes and colors of the natural world. And the result is stunning – he tries to capture and mimic an actual species with intricate detail on the tiny limbs and thorax. Also, in some cases he creates fantastical creatures in rich color palette. According to Wesley Fleming, he finds great joy in sculpting glass, regardless of the end result.
