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.

Ask your readers to donate their Blenko and American made glass.
Estate sales 'give the glass away' and young people - not us - but most under 40 people have no appreciation for the glass or the maker.
Donate your Glass to this museum.

Let my subscription expire, the location should be excellent for all West Virginians as Weston is the center of your state.
Will you add photos of the glass on display.

Several bridge club members have made arrangements to donate their glass to State of WV Cultural Center, is this the same?
