French designer Rene Lalique (1860 - 1945) was famous for his glass art creations, and was said to draw significant inspiration from nature in his works. A limited time event at Tokyo's Teien Art Museum will explore a range of Lalique's nature-inspired glass art pieces, including pendants depicting snowy landscapes, perfume bottles etched with fern patterns, and vases embellished with eucalyptus leaf motifs.
Adult admission to the event is priced at 1400 yen.
