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.

BLENKO GLASS at the WV Museum of American Glass

Hillary:

Here is one of the photos I took at the WV Museum of American Glass today for others to enjoy on your blog. The museum represents glass from so many factories, not just BLENKO. However, there is a fine collection of BLENKO. I am sending this photo because it says so much about the BLENKO style and use of color. This little orange vessel spoke to me. It looks like he has legs and is trying to walk off that shelf! For those who love American Glass, the museum is a MUST SEE. Consider taking a detour through Weston, WV during your vacation this summer. http://wvmag.bglances.com/

I sent you about four new "glass" photos a few weeks ago. You may want to check your spam folder. I love the picture you have posted now; however, you have published it previously!

Remember, I use my other account to send photos!

Clearly if Glasslady knew the answer to these questions she would be fat over 40 and drinking coffee w/ bonbons while watching SOAPS.
Facts are she is a medical resident, probably working 60-75 hours a week.
I'll bet she doesn't give a dam_ about these issues.
Read the past post, she ask that we focus on the positive. Why is she allowing annonymous comments?
Phone the Blenko # and ask the management questions.

Check the blenko glass website for Festival information.
I saw nothing listed for collectors, nor have I received any communication stating a meeeting will occur.
Many classes and other activities.
Annu before todays comment I had assumed you to be wearing saffron robes, nice to see how cheeky you can become. Welcome!
