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.

Red, White and Blue - I always feel patriotic when I see these colors - don't ask me why? I like the color combination, in clothing, housewares and glass.

BLENKO GLASS http://www.blenkoglass.com/ has often done red white and blue theme glass - but the most sought after grouping is one by Wayne Husted pictured above.

as a tricolour, they are also the national colours for various countries—the phrase "Red, White and Blue" can be a reference to the Flag of the United States and the Union Flag.
The flag of the United States of America consists of 13 equal horizontal stripes of red (top and bottom) alternating with white, with a blue rectangle in the canton bearing 50 small, white, five-pointed stars arranged in nine offset horizontal rows of six stars (top and bottom) alternating with rows of five stars. The 50 stars on the flag represent the 50 U.S. states and the 13 stripes represent the original Thirteen Colonies that rebelled against the British crown and became the first states in the Union.[1] Nicknames for the flag include the stars and stripes, Old Glory,[2] the American flag, and the star-spangled banner (also the name of the country's official national anthem).
