Realistic Insect Sculptures Made From Glass


In 2012, artist Yuki Tsunoda attempted to visualize the disgust and aversion most people feel when they see insects. As she worked on the project, she realized that there was more to insects – perhaps even a beauty that could be highlighted. Thus came into being Glass insetto, a series by the artist that shows glass sculptures of insects.

The detailed and painstakingly created structures are quite realistic, almost to scale and shaped out of glass. Working on a miniature scale, the sculptures are incredibly intricate. Tsunoda works primarily with Italian Moretti glass – a medium soft glass that is malleable and colorful. A selection of these insects is available for purchase on the artist’s online shop.
