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.

Miss WV - Hands out the Blenko Birthday Cards.


The blog received a total of 22 comments on the appearance of Miss West Virginia. All very positive comments. She is a native of Milton, West Virginia and one family wrote she was the kindergarten teacher for their child.

Even more beautiful in person!

Thanks to WV Janis for this photo.

Miss WV was, indeed delightful. What is her name? See her on You Tube.

Jessi Pierson is Miss West Virginia.

As Hillary reminded us, she is from Milton. What an honor for her and for Milton. Hopefully, BLENKO is keeping her supplied with BLENKO glass to gift to people as she tours.

Perhaps she can be the new PBS face for BLENKO. A little publicity goes a long way! Both Jessi and BLENKO deserve the best!

After months of not participating much on "Heart of Glass," I've about worn out my welcome today! Signing off-- for now!

Having Ms WV come to work for Blenko is a fab idea. If she is an elementary teacher this means a Bachelor degree so she could perhaps be the Assistant to VP or VP #2.
She is beautiful and would represent WV Blenko and If I am remembering the pagent correctly she also speaks with distinction very impressive.
Correct age, education and also beautiful and speeaks well no one could ask for more. Perhpas Blenkos will read WVJanis comments and offer her a position.
She would be an asset. Face of Blenko, she could eliminate the traveling for other office staff.

I missed the DAWG and group.
Everyone was very nice, we saw none of the problems {nor did the people in our group of 30} didn't see our friends from last year, had a great time. Decided 3 days before to go, last year I planned for 3 months.
The Bayliss Team did an outta site job on this one. Last year 2008 is still my favorite. As a group we have all but one, as an individual I have all but 10.
Anyone selling? Hilary er Dr Homburg can you list seller of Birthday Vase or buyers? I want to buy, as do most of our group members.
Now what is the word on the Blenko Collectors? Is it or ain't it a group?
