BLENKO GLASS experimental 384 . A must have for the Water Bottle collector.

As Blenko further experiments with color inclusions in our iconic 384 water bottle we create a few of these and a little run of those.

This is just such a water bottle- made in only 10 first quality pieces.

In a dark Cobalt base and swirled, random picked up pieces of other color: Red, White and perhaps more, depending on the object. EACH WILL BE DISTINCTLY different.

Impossible to repeat this exact color combination so get one while we have a scarce few on hand.
Many fans of the Water Bottle will love this one. 
Please get your water bottle engraved with Walter Blenko's signature.

Thanksgiving Celebration

Thanksgiving is a great time to be thankful and appreciate who you have and what you have. It is a time for families to meet, socialize and enjoy each other's company, sometimes the only opportunity in a year. Some prefer it to Christmas because of less emphasis on consumerism. Thanksgiving, for most, is also a start of a four day weekend which is great, too.
