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.

YOU are in LUCK - a small number of the Festival of GLASS vases remain. Its not too late. Phone BLENKO GLASS or order on line today. www.blenkoglass.com phone 304 743 9081. Photo is of Randy RIDER one of the very best glass craftsmen from BLENKO - he serves as Shop Foreman but hasn't given up his chair - the other photo is 'THE VASE' I wish a photo could capture the beauty of this item.hjh

Hillary "Your BLENKO video has been airing in DC for the past three weeks, it seems. That video must bring in $ BLENKO & for WETA or they wouldn’t show it.
Its past time for a new video I told WETA - but still donated.

Great News! Always when the PBS Blenko Glass films run - we don't see them in the Southern part of WV very often.
Thank you for reading and for commenting.
Friend in Iowa saw them last month.

Then wait, you'll have the 1st Editon of a Festival of Glass Line which may become like the WV Birthday Line.
Sweetdoc - Calm down. Blenko is Blenko.
Go down to the VC this weekend and shop! Nothing has changed, see for yourself.

Talk about ISSUES How will Rick Blenko be able to do the volunteer work he does for PBS? Blenko Glass doesn't think about the future or the good will. I forsee
problems here.
Not what you want to hear Hilary but true.
