How the Last Great American Flower Factory Still Blooms Over Midtown, NYC. Oak Spring Garden Foundation - Conserving an Oak Spring Masterpiece. In 2018, the Oak Spring Garden Foundation made the decision to conserve Schlumberger’s masterpiece and replace it with a copper and bronze replica.
In July 2020, the long project came full circle when conservators moved the fully restored original sculpture to an exhibition room in the Oak Spring Garden Foundation Gallery, where it will be protected from the elements. “It’s been very rewarding to bring back the original, and to be a part of Oak Spring with my long history here,” said conservator Andrew Baxter, of Bronze Et Al. Baxter has worked on projects for both Paul and Bunny Mellon in the past, including conservation work on some of Mr. Mellon’s bronze racehorse statues. Brendel Plant Model Survey. Written by Donna Young, Curator of Herbarium, World Museum, National Museums Liverpool Inspired by the project led by the Corning Museum of Glass, which looked at holdings of Blaschka models, I am embarking on a project to map and document collections of Brendel botanical models worldwide.
When Royalty, Scientists, and Gardeners All Wanted Fake Fruit. The city of Turin, in northern Italy, is famous for unusual museums, from the National Car Museum to a museum dedicated to personal finance.
But hidden in one of the city’s iconic Baroque buildings lies a cultural oddity overlooked by most guidebooks. More than 1,100 life-size models of apples, pears, peaches, and grapes sit on display in two large rooms adorned with 19th-century frescoes. Until recently, the resin and wax fruits were scattered around the Royal Station of Agricultural Chemistry, a research outpost run by the local government. When the Royal Station closed in the early 2000s, workers sorting through old books and equipment discovered the unusual artifacts, abandoned for almost a century.
Formafantasma: Cambio. Annette Marie Townsend - beeswax flower models; I’ve spent the last few months working solidly on my beeswax wildflower installation for Collect Open and the piece is really taking shape, so with one month to go until the fair, I thought it was a good time to share a little more of the making process.
For the installation I’ll be arranging my sculptures in compartments and drawers within a transparent jewellery box. The first stage was to design and make a cardboard mock-up of the box to see out how the sculptures might fit in each space. When I was happy with the design, it was drawn up in a 3D sketch and then manufactured in clear acrylic.

3D models of plant anatomy from 19th century. Paper plants and wax peaches at the Manchester Museum. In 1863 the director of Dresden’s Natural History Museum had the bright idea of asking the Bohemian glassworker Leopold Blaschka to create models of sea anemones.
Marine invertebrates lost their shape and colour when preserved in alcohol, but Blaschka’s glass models were so accurate and exquisitely crafted that demand soon followed from museums across the world. When Leopold’s son Rudolf entered the family business the Blaschka catalogue expanded to include a thousand items, from soft-bodied invertebrates to flowers.

The Terracotta Fungi of Francesco Valenti Serini (1795-1872) Dillon Weston: Fungal Sculptures. On a July day in 1930, British Airship R100 took to the sky from a Bedfordshire airfield on its first transatlantic flight.
As it made its way across the Atlantic Ocean, 2,000ft above sea-level, a window opened and Squadron Leader Booth, wearing a pair of rubber gloves, leaned out. In his hand was a Petri dish. Below, on the HMS Ausonia, Cambridge mycologist Dr W.A.R. Dillon Weston watched through the porthole of his cabin. Michael Sherrill. The Botanical Dioramas of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. Botany Hall is situated in a corner of the second floor of the CMNH, accessible through the North American Wildlife section.
Inside, seven window dioramas depict seven different biomes of the United States. In each, a richly painted curved wall supports a highly detailed three-dimensional scene, in which every individual leaf, stem, insect wing, and bit of moss is hand crafted and botanically accurate. The complexity of these dioramas and the wonder they were meant to inspire is somewhat lost on many of the people who enter the hall I think.
