Reader ask: Photo of Angel

Roxie wanted to see the Angels. I'm in Charleston and this is the only one I have here - it doesn't photograph well. Les makes Angels and Snowmen and most anything that was ever in the Blenko line.
Les Womack will be working on August 23rd I don't know that he will be making Angels on the 23rd Roxie - but here is a photo of the Angels and Snowman. hjh

Do the angels come in other colors
like pastels?

The angels are usually made in a range of colors anywhere from blue, green, pink tones, purple, even yellow. They also can be made in solid crystal. Angels are typically a seasonal item available only at the Visitor Center

NOTE: Les Womack usually makes angels and snowmen during Thanksgiving Xmas - so you may look for them at the VC during this time. They are beautiful and a wonderful gift for any age.

Nice pieces of small craft art.
Do the gentlemen at Blenko make other creatures?

Not too many. We do make small, one-of-a-kind multi-colored fish and at Easter we make Bunnies.
