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.

Happy Birthday to BLENKO Collector Skip Copley
He and his daughter Julia, own a unique Blenko Glass Collection. Skip's family and friends tells me they will spend the week end, at his lake house, discussing Blenko, jet skiing, water boarding, eating and trading glass with one another.
Skip's collection include items from all the Blenko Designers, many West Virginia Birthday Vases, and a collection of 'end of day' items made and signed by various Blenko Glass workers.
Note: Know a Blenko Collector with outstanding Blenko Glass? Submit their name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll ask for permission to photo and display their glass for everyone to view on the Heart of Glass Blog.
