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.

Hi Hillary,

one blogger asked about Dave Osburn's Snowman Decanter with a removable hat. Attached are a few pics. One is with a Blenko Ruby Water Bottle for size comparison.

Merry Christmas

The snowmen are much bigger than I thought and it is so creative that the hat comes off. If the hat were brimless, you could use it for a water bottle at the bedside and drink from the hat.

We should use the BLENKO water bottle as the measurement standard. That was so helpful Tim. My dream is to make a trip to BLENKO, stop by Osbourne's shop, visit Kissin Kates, and top off the wonderful day with a trip to Hillbilly Hot Dogs. Maybe we could somehow incorporate such an adventure into one of the meetings or special dates..... not birthday piece day though, that gets too crazy. For now, just dreaming as I've still got to finish my "to do" list before turning in for the night.
