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.

I did go to the Mother Blog on Herald. Thanx for this suggestion.
Seeing Heart of Glass on Home Page is a nice change. I support the Hearld's good decison. Hope this is a permanent additon to their home page.

Future Dentist Homburg
Saw Sol this weekend in Columbus
our class reunited for a weekend.
You will be honored to learn he spoke your name less than 5 times.
Terrific work on the Blog. Home page for the Herald is much improved with the GlassLadies photo and link.
Saw that Blenko is now stating they had a great 2007 and expect to remain open for a decade or more. Does this mean you will stop the blog?
More articles that include some of your personality and interest are most appreciated.
FYI I stopped at Blenko before the reunion and bought 20 pieces to be used as Prizes for our reunion. Do you get a % of sales you generate?
Take care.
I will continue to read, and monitor Solomons obsession.
