Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

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.

My family and I returned tonight from a brief visit to North Carolina. The weather was terrific, it was nice to go about without a jacket.

Tonight I am posting Christmas Decorations - these are photos you have sent - I have several others - and will post more later this week.

These photos are from Terri and Barry DiLibero of Pa. they belong to theBLENKO COLLECTORS SOCIETY.

Did Blenko make those
steer heads?
and that other creature?

the steer heads are Blenko
I dunno about the other, but will ask Terri and let you know.
Phone Blenko to special order the heads - they were reproduced last year.
Thanks for your comments and
Happy Shopping.

The lizard is Talavera pottery. Made in Mexico. I purchased this one in Albuquerque, New Mexico about 3 years ago.
