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.

Make Mine PINK! - Pink Ice Returns to BLENKO Glass

Limited appearance - PINK ICE - Returns for the Holiday to Blenko Glass. This glass we hope will be ready in LATE NOVEMBER FOR THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY! You can order the sweetpea by phone (304 743 9081)
For all those ' MAKE MINE PINK' people Blenko Glass Company http://www.blenkoglass.com/ will be doing a very limited run of PINK ICE*
Blenko expects to have PINK ICE ready the last week in November - but we'll post a notice as soon as PINK ICE is available. I incorrectly reported pre orders were available. This is not the case. You will need to wait.
Last year due to school conflicts - - I wasn't able
to purchase PINK ICE (it sold out very quickly) for my 'make mine pink' friend Laura, or for
family friend Clara who is a CANCER SURVIVOR. The Color PINK long
thought of a being a feminine, soft , sweet color has come to represent
STRENGTH as it is used for the Pink Ribbon to promote Cancer Awareness.
I'm a JEWEL TONE woman, I don't usually like pastels, however, PINK ICE is a color that will have even the non pink crowd asking for more! Visit BLenko Visitors Center and see the PINK ICE.

Pink is the colour we most often connect with romance. Used for love, friendship, harmony, compassion, relaxation and companionship. Pink is symbolic of gentle emotions and of emotional unions. Western society often links pink with very young female children and has recently been used in the pick ribbon breast cancer campaign. Use it in Magic spells of protection and unconditional love.

BUY SOMETHING PINK ( BLENKO OF COURSE) and see how it makes you feel!

Heart of Glass is on the newspaper homepage again. Should be a permanent arrangement for all blogs.
Easier to find.

How nice to start hearing from someone in the company on the BLOG. Christy's comments and knowledge are much appreciated!

Hillary and Blog Readers:

I'm glad we are getting away from the posts about the shake-up/reorganization at BLENKO. However, for those who really want to understand the issues behind many community members' frustration with the situation, I suggest reading Milton's Blog. When you read all of those messages, you start to understand how the locals feel about BLENKO, about this blog, and about what it might take to help BLENKO survive.

The insiders' views should not be dismissed lightly. They have helped me understand the rage and anger radiating from our "anonymous."

Here is the link. You don't need to be a member to read. You do have to be a member to post:

westvirginiajanis and hilly
we went to the milton blog, wow- ee , those people are angry. Hilly you should read the milton blog, take off your rose tinted glasses and see milton is full of vile.
one thing i will say the contributors of this milton blog seem to know the history of blenko and milton, Hilly, you are forever looking for people to tell you the history of blenko and milton. These men and women spout it daily. Some one posted using jarfly name, is he the one you are seeking info on?
Warning they called you Hilly, silly and naive.
We will agree that you are naive and see the world as pure, but silly, I for one wish you had some silly you are much too serious. Read the blog then combine forces. Or else send my staff down to slay the profane person who dared use your name in vain.

HIllary:

In the above message, Sol has shown us his serious side. I think you owe him to let him see your silly side. One possibility would be to (please) post pictures of Halloween. I know you will be out there in full costume!

Be safe everyone...

You are very correct about Christy. She came to Blenko after attending Marshall University, she has been with BLENKO GLASS in the office ever since that day.
Her dad is LES WOMACK, you often hear me comment on his Angels, Snowmen. He returns often to Blenko, he was / is one of the most skilled Blenko People.
Christy probably has forgotten more about BLENKO GLASS than all the rest of us combined can ever hope to know. She is a walking Blenko Glass encyclopedia. A fine business woman, an excellent people person. Blenko has always been well represented by Christy. Her talents, skills, ability to work well with others is something much needed at Blenko and valued in all Companies both large and small.
Christy is an asset, a very valuable asset to Blenko and we're happy to consider her a Heart of Glass friend. HJH
