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.

AUGUST 21 - 23 BLENKO CONVENTION
If you are a COLLECTOR of West Virginia or BLENKO Glass this is a must do. If you aren't a collector of Blenko or West Virginia Glass this is a time you should come to Milton, see the people who make the glass, get a 'feel' for the company, the quality of glass, and enjoy this well planned 8/21-23 time.
Because so many of you ask. We contacted Richard Blenko, CEO of Blenko Glass and he was kind enough to give us a brief overview of the plans. The date is finalized, many classes and other activities will continue to be added.
Mr. Blenko said:
"we are considering a paperweight class,jewelry making; casting class, dalle de verre and glass blowing."
Mark your calendars - and plan to drive down/up to Milton for this event. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Blenko Glass 304 743 9081.
