Bayliss - Bravo Collection

Information about the Bravo Collection from the Blenko Glass Company.
Bayliss Design Team presents - The Bravo! Collection
Bravo! Collection is a celebration of Blenko’s successful history. These pieces are an encore that pays homage to memorable 50’s and 60’s designs, yet they also push the ideas and forms into the future. Optimistic, fun, with colors that POP, Bravo! also celebrates life NOW with hot new colors and cool new forms.
Not only do the pieces look great, they work well too. Try pouring from the bird neck pitcher to see what we mean. Voluptuous and curved or svelte and stretched, from and function unite in this juicy, young line. Instead of simply being a decorative motif, the punches that produce the interesting contours of the vessels also create areas that the hand can easily grasp. These pieces really lend themselves to mixing or matching; never has orange, blue, and purple looked so good together. Bravo! Blenko loves Blenko again!
Available in: Ruby, Dreamcicle, Clover, & Electric Blue *Sunshine and Vineyard have been discontinued.

The Herald-Dispatch

The following information was provided by the Cabell County Sheriff's Office:

Sometime between 3:30 p.m. Sept. 10 and 6 a.m. Sept. 11, someone cut the wire fence around Blenko Glass in Milton and entered the a locked door to the building. Someone took four pieces of glass valued at $716. Damage to the fence was about $2,000. The glass pieces were stamped "Blenko" and "2009."

Hillary what is the story? What did they take and did they damage that beautiful Joel Myers fence?
