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.

June 20, 2002. Stone and Thomas Department Store. Color of this one is not the usual shade of blue - the arms are gold. I've been told this was designed in house by Dave Osburn and Rodney Wade, but no confirmation of this. hjh

OK, let us know how the exams went. Are you officially a dentist? Tell us the truth, when you smell burning enamel do you see dollar signs?

Advice from one professional to another, only recommend procedures that really need to be done. Make every effort to do procedures that are needed. Before you know it, you will be known as Doctor Integrity-- not always easy to find; however, I suspect you will be one.

Will your office feature Blenko? Blenko stained glass doors? panel to separate the waiting from the receptionist? Keep us posted.

I ask at Blenko and was told
this was designed by Rick Blenko and the glassworkers.
