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.

Les Womack & Crew Create

Angels. . .most anytime is right for an Angel. . .perfect for any gift giving occassion.

Les Womack (retired Blenko craftsman and foreman) has been making angels and other objects of art for your Holiday purchase.

Last week he used 'PINK ICE' to make angels. This is an AWESOME combination. I'm uploading photos of the Angels.

Tomorrow we'll have photos of the new decanters being made at Blenko. Is it my imagination or is the creativity increasing at Blenko? Randy Rider and Crew have been steadily working to improve the quality and made the items you have been waiting to purchase. Return tomorrow to see these decanters.

More Womack photos, my Mom and her roommate only look at your blog when you have photos of Mr Womack.
She keeps saying how handsome he is.
I mentioned the wife and child and she mentioned Rock Hudson, she thinks he looks like Rock Hudson.
Have you heard this before?

I will say I love those little angels and anyone can afford to buy just one. They look lovely in a window, where the light shines through and gives them a glow. To the anger person. Move away from WV and live somewhere else. You will find that we are made fun of everywhere. We could be our own country should there ever be a reason for that. You need to study the history of WV and let God do the juding of WEST VIRGINIA. Wonder what God thinks of you? I like my rose colored glasses and my blue ones and my yellow ones. You must have the wrong color on. Complete darkness, know wonder you are so angry. I pray that the Good Lord helps you with that problem. Maybe that is not anger but making fun of you are displaying and that will come back one day to bite you.Raised my children on what goes around comes around only when it comes back around it could be worse than it went around the first time. That is right you are putting yourself and your family in bondage. Sorry Hillary only some people need help and just don't realize it. Always one who like to stir the pot or to see if they can start a pot to stir so that someone can sling it all over them.. Roxie

Someone needs to make HOSPICE aware of these angels.
Hilary you should do this immediately. Hospice uses angels in their theme.
It would be a great national account and bring much attention to
Blenko. The Kanawha County Hospice Director is handsome and single, as is the one in Martinsburg.

I have a blue angel ordered, they are all really lovely. Hospice idea is a good thought.

Angry person's thoughts will destroy their health and relationships with others. We all want toxic people like that out of our lives. They are "glass empty" people. They will be unhappy no matter where they go. Fix yourself.

I love the idea of the angels for HOSPICE. The person who is dying could have one placed by his/her bedside and the next of kin could be given the angel when his/her loved one is no longer of this world.

Maybe somebody could get this tradition started.
