Vendor Profile - Bug Under Glass

We are happy to welcome one of the Bay Area's most unique artists/vendors - Bug Under Glass.

Meeting an entomologist convinced Kevin Clarke to quit a career in finance and pursue a Master’s Degree in Conservation Biology that focused on insect conservation. While in grad school, he learned about Butterfly Farming and the positive impact it has on forest conservation, while at the same time providing an important income to disadvantaged populations.

Bug Under Glass pupated in 2002 to combine a love of insects, art, science education and conservation. Every display Kevin makes has a little story attached to it that brings to life the insect inside. His displays also make a valuable contribution to forest conservation by helping butterfly farmers support a lifestyle that preserves rainforest, instead of cutting them down.
