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.

WVJanis' Photos from Weston (cont)






WVJanis was kind enough to send photos from her recent road trip to West Virginia.
SPAM got the photos - and just yesterday did I recover them.
IF you send photos or notes and I DON'T respond, write again - it means I probably didn't receive the photos or letters -and put BLENKO in the subject head - to avoid SPAM. I appreciate your comments, your photos, and its so helpful when you write about your GLASS experiences.
Not everyone is can get out to visit due to illness, time constraints, family responsibilities etc. You provide a service when you share your photos and experiences. hjh

Nice pic's. I will know what to look for when I travel for a weekend to these places of interest that I would like to see. Does Blenko have any glass at the Smithsoian Insitute In Washington D.C.? Not sure I spell sometimes not so good. Draw a blank use phonics. I chewed my dinner with my knew piece of art that at this moment is a one of akind. Does Blenko make a set of teeth for Halloween? I know I am funny, only it is nice to have jaw teeth again. If I would of thought we could of taken picture's to show everyone my beautiful teeth. I will keep these forever and I plan to keep my bill of sale forever with all my information, never know what they could someday be worth.WVU made by HJH. Have a good weekend everyone. Roxie

Tell me what you did at WVU to
acquire HJH as your dentist.
I have phoned, I have contacts there but they tell me one must become part of a patient pool.
Were you just lucky?
I await your answer.

If they make the zodiac discs again, hopefully they will change them enough so that the old ones can retain their value. I've had mine since the 1970's It is almost 40 years old. I'd hate for it to be confused with a NEW one. Blenko has done a good job of keeping the vintage items collectible. Maybe the size could be a little different or the year could be stamped around the outer edge.

Margie, WVJanis, Roxie the three of you keep me returning. You are the nicest ladies, make interesting contributions to this group.

Let us not forget Miss HIllary-- she is nicest of all.

You all keep me returning to this Blenko blog too. To have the chance to talk to other people who appreciate WV glass is a joy. I also get inspired to keep taking pictures of glass because everyone seems interested.

By the way, I haven't always been this "nice," but the great thing about blogs is that they give you a chance to "reinvent" yourself. The benefits of being nice far outweigh the consequences for being colic-y!
