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.

MORE Blenko Lamps

These photos arrived yesterday from a Marshall University Prof, the lamps belonged to her mother. The photos are beautiful, I knew you'd want to view them. The red one is spectacular - I want to know more about this lamp and vase. The crackle cobalt is also a lovely retro piece. Enlarge photos for better viewing. HJH
PLEASE SHARE YOUR PHOTOS OF BLENKO send to theblenkoproject@aol.com.

We should start now writing our legislators if you don't live
in West Virginia write to the Pres of Senate and House
otherwise write to your local reps.
Ms Hillary needs to be honored during the session for her
work in bring the West Virginia glass makers to our attention.
Also for her work as an advocate for Blenko and W.Va. Glass.

I had not seen this red lamp or anything like it before.
Beautiful is it Blenko?
Anonymous I do not live in West Virginia but agree with your idea, I will set down this weekend and write to the Senate of West Virginia.
West Virginias are very thoughtful. Great idea and it should be done before Ms.H graduates and leaves your state.

A better solution would be for Blenko Glass Company to write and also the Blenko Collectors Club letters from these two would be appropriate, get Blenko publicity and we could also start a writing campaign.
If more young people received positive reinforcement for their behaviors we'd have more volunteers in the community.
