Yeah, aren't those great?  I just love the CMOG site.  I posted the same link a couple weeks ago among a bunch of other links.  Speaking of CMOG links, your post now stimulated a search for a CMOG link I couldn't find before to a video about Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka, and the lampworked plants and invertebrates they made.  I saw the exhibit last year, and it was absolutely astounding.  And I found the video!  It's on this page:

This one shows a bunch of examples from the exhibit:

The Blaschka exhibit was the one part of the museum I didn't take pictures of (I was rushing at that point), and boy am I sorry!  A lot of the pieces on display were actually of diseased plants, and I found it fascinating.  I have a book of the Harvard Glass Flowers, but there aren't many of the sick plants shown, or the greatly magnified versions of plant parts.  The sheer numbers of these amazing sculptures is incredible, and they're big!  You can see how they would be excellent teaching tools.
