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.

Variations - Blenko glass designed by Wayne Husted.
Heart of Glass is searching for photos of the entire series. If you own Variations please send photos and any information about the series you might possess.
Thanks HJH
Photo of July issue for Variations.

July swirl in Blenko Sea Green. Probably the best selling along with the Oval June design.

Glass Art Society is perhaps the oldest of the glass art groups.
Among the members are the founders of Glass Art movement, Joel Myers, Harvey Littleton, Marvin L (your hero) many many others and most serious students of glass art.
Randy rider should be joining and the Bronze Look owner who supports glass. This group is all inclusive and oost are low.

Sometime ago you mentioned having Husted write about this collection
what happen?
Also you mentioned Tammy would be writing about Blenko Collectors beginning, again what happen?
Now for the question of the year, is there a collectors group? I hve sent emails to the online contact w/o response.
Just asking, not meant to be critical or pressure you

In my humble thoughts Husted
kept Blenko alive in a time when
other small companies were suffering.
His vision his glass is the blenko most collectors seek.
Why does no one publish this?
Why doesn't blenko have him return for another well advertised item?
