Shorty Finley at BLENKO on 12/22

Nothing is more beautiful than seeing an 84 year old man doing what he loves - - - the pleasure is visible when Everette 'SHORTY' Finley is blowing glass. Shorty retired from Blenko more than a decade ago - he returns occasionally to work with the 'boys'. If you are doing the self guided tour at the BLENKO GLASS VISITORS CENTER - and see a handsome grey haired fell with a ball cap.....that very well may be Shorty Finley. He's quiet the 'showman'. . .loves talking about glass and most especially loves to speak about BLENKO GLASS. NOTE: BLENKO GLASS COMPANY IS LOCATED IN MILTON West Virginia. Off I -64.
