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.

Wissmach Glass Company

News from another of my Favorite WEST VIRGINIA Glass Manufacturers - if your hobby involves Stain Glass you know Wissmach - the windows in my parents home are made entirely of Wissmach and Blenko Glass. No finer glass exist. Below is a note from Wissmach describing new products- check them out! If you aren't involved with Stain Glass or Jewelry making - consider this new hobby. Amanda's Stain Glass Studio in Charleston WV offers classes, many of the Adult Education after school programs offer Stain Glass Making and Blenko Glass' Don Lemley offers classes. Classes are affordable.

With the slower economic times we have had more time to develop new products. The first product that we are introducing is our SYSTEM 90 fusing glass compatible with all coe 90 glass on the market. Worldwide testing of the product is complete with 100% satisfaction from all distributors and artists that have put the glass through their own testing process. Pricing is about 33% less than other coe 90 products currently on the market.
Most distributors have placed their orders for the clear available in 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, and 6mm thicknesses. We will soon be introducing black and white along with several other pastel colors. Full sheets are available in stock sizes 32x42 and 32X84 inches.

Pre cut shapes such as circles and pillows are now available as well, prepackaged in sets of 10 pieces per box.

Please contact your distributor or you may contact us directly with any questions or comments that you may have.

When do you leave for OSU?
Why didn't the WVU folk refuse to allow you to leave the state?
Promise you will return, Ohio kept one of my sons for 5+ years.
Beautiful place and lots of classic music, dance and art, Dr Hillary you are required to keep blog readers informed as to your personal life and activities in Ohio.
Wissmach is rich with history and the glass panels are nice framed alone.
