Blenko Collectors HELP!

Reader Needs INFO:

I became Blenko obsessed about 20 years ago when I inherited two pieces of bubble class from my grandmother. Do you know of a glass blower (now deceased) with the last name WRAY. He lived on Francis Street in Huntington. His mother and my grandmother were friends. The pieces, one a purple vase and the other a turquoise dish, were made by this man. He predeceased his mother. I am thinking they are from the sixties because of the style of the pieces.
Can you provide any information about Blenko and bubble glass ie photos etc and also info about this glass worker.
Ill be looking for the answer.
