Wesley Fleming's Profile
Welcome to the microcosmos of VETROPOD, the best place to find exquisitely detailed, hand-made glass bugs made by glass sculptor Wesley Fleming!
Having worked with hot glass since 2001, I am inspired by the shapes and colors of nature as well as my wacky imagination, spending much of my spare time exploring under rocks and logs outdoors. With my glass insects, I mimic actual species with intricate detail. In other pieces I conjure creatures from dreams and my inner reality.
I individually hand-make all of my sculptures over a torch, using Effetre brand soda-lime (aka "soft") glass rods and properly anneal them in a digitally-controlled kiln.
