May 6 – Nov. 5, 2017

Following in the footsteps of blockbuster Phipps glass shows by Dale Chihuly and others, Jason Gamrath's SUPER. NATURAL. brought an exciting new twist to the art form, showcasing glass orchids, Venus fly traps, pitcher plants and other stunning specimens that are remarkably accurate representations of their living counterparts — only on a massive scale, standing anywhere from six to 14 feet tall. The show filled the glasshouse rooms with more than 40 major installations, each of which was carefully selected for its specific room and location, and many of which were custom made for Phipps. Extended evening hours and a plant changeout for the fall season gave guests a number of exciting ways to see this show during its six-month run.
