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.

THIS IS MY 3RD WV WINTER. THE FIRST TWO WERE NICE. THIS YEAR I AM MISSING THE WEST COAST WEATHER.
NICE PHOTO BRUCE, ? IS IT THE LIGHT OR DOES THAT FIRST JUG HAVE SOME DESIGN INSIDE?

Rita,
While I am most definitely not the
'person who would know'
my thoughts are its (now I'm guessing a husted 581 or myers 7301?) and we're seeing the shadow.

Bruce solve this mystery for Mountain Rita before I really step deep into the S>

I agree with Hilly another item behind not a design.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, I love glass and now I have another reason to love Texas.
This summer I expect to spend lots of time in Texas.
Bruce can you suggest glass museums and shops? I'll be there for July 10-August 24.
thanks

Hi Rita,
The piece that appears inside or as a design on the outside of the Charcoal jug is actually a Chartreuse #5411 sitting on the table behind the jug. One of the benifits of clear vs. crackle glass. I enjoy juxta-positioning pieces to create surprises in arrangements of our collection.

I did receive the 1st annual Marion Blenko Award - I have said little about this as I felt unworthy - there are a dozen people who have done more - Tammy Kosla Damon Crain Blenko Bill Terri and the list goes on . . . not that I should have an award I volunteer for Blenko daily - but these folks came before me and do more than I could ever do.
I just happen to be
'available' that year.
