Readers Respond to Bubble Glass Question.


“Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope.” The questions come daily, and you guys are always so kind to provide answers, more insight, and sometimes photos. Your responses I'm certain are what make the new / beginner collectors return!

Some mornings while reading my mail I feel like a STAR WARS character. Yet it seems the BLENKO GLASS and WV Glass lovers always arrive to assist to provide support for me and for BLENKO GLASS. Belonging to a community is a 'good thing.'
Heart of Glass blog has the most terrific, enthusiastic, loyal readers in the world .

amodernguy has left a new comament on your post "Answer: Question about Bubble Glass":
The photo is indeed of Blenko's Vineyard line.There were also some pieces done utilizing a "controlled bubble" technique where small air bubbles were evenly positioned in the glass as part of the design. I have a charcoal lamp with these controlled bubbles. There is a photo of it currently on a post regarding mid- 20th century lamps at Just a Modern Guy. Note: Chuck and his bride Ms. Modern Gal own the PURPLE MOON in downtown Charleston. The #1 place in the tri state for Vintage 20th
Century items of quality. When you visit - if you don't see what you want - ask them - they'll help you find the item(s).

Why thank you Hilary
We read at the Senior Center
usually on line and to others.
We often print off the photos and use them on the walls. Some people say they like to use them to look for glass.

Kind words from a gentle heart.
My entire staff and now people from the other offices are becoming interested in our colorful glass and the crazy comments from your newspaper column.
We consider our selves new addicts.
We like that you try to find answers to our questions, and you don't seem to mind that we email you frequently.
You keep us informed and motivated.
Can you now keep us on a low carb diet and walking daily?
