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.

Matt, Wayne Husted is credited with the large floor vases made at Blenko Glass. You may want to consider purchasing at Blenko Glass. Several designs are currently being made, or have been made in the last 2 -3 years. This photo is of my favorite vase, I own this one in Ruby, Cobalt, and the old orange. Tomorrow I'll publish photos of other large floor vases available for purchase at Blenko Glass. My other suggestion for vintage is to check out the Blenko Glass inspired websites - look for photos you like, then either hire a glasshunter, or start going to estate sales. You might also check out Kissin Kate's website, Purple Moon (Charleston, WV) and Trophy Hair (Charleston, WV) .
*Tangerine & Topaz are a "Limited Availability" color. It is only made at certain times of the year. If you order any ofthese lines, it could take up to 3 months for delivery
