Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

Can you tell me what they used to make the bottle tree in Blenko yard?
I have many bottles and stoppers but need to know how they are staying on the tree. I want to use some of my Mom's milky and sick older pieces to make this as a surprise for her.
Alex, We'll send a note to Dean Six and ask where they purchased the metal hangers and also the rubber inserts ( see photo below).
Good luck with your recreation of the Blenko Glass Bottle Tree. HJH

Ernie Downey - a glass artist - we own a few of his pieces of jewelry using sterling or silver based metals and Blenko Glass.
Ernie Downey's work is sold in many bouquets in the tri state. Ernie uses BLENKO GLASS in his designs.
Pictured above is one of his latest creations - I'm calling it a paddle - but I would envision a group of three or four hung in a kitchen.
Beautiful yet very functional.
