Variations - A Very Valuable Blenko Series

What can you tell me of a Blenko collection called Variations,
when was it made how many pieces and do you have photos?
I don't have photos, Two people (steve bair of Charleston and Wayne Husted of Calif ) who know the most about this grouping - I'll contact. Wayne Husted designed the series of 12 vases for Blenko. Steve Bair did all artist work on the campaign ( I believe this to be true- check back for a factual statement and photos.)
Readers, Anyone have photos or info about this collection?
Note: Readers Wayne Husted has graciously agreed to write about the Varations Collection.
We need photos of this Collection - if you own Variations please send photos to
theblenkoproject@aol.com Thank you.
Wayne's post will appear each month in November.
