Photographing Blenko

HIllary: Here is another photo for the blog.
The vase in front is Blenko. The one in back is a stray. If anyone knows the origin, please let me know. I love blue and green together so this ice-bucket-looking piece came home with us. Red glass is hard to photograph (although not as difficult as purple); so, the blue/green piece was just what the doctor ordered to balance that STRONG red.

Nice picture. You and Hillary's Uncle Barry have alot in common. He collects the ruby red. I have seen the blue/green/yellow before in glasses. For the life of me I cannot remember the name. Saw this in Jefferson County seems some family member had the glasses. Interesting and different. Did anyone get any new Blenko for Christmas? I would like to know what everyone is up too. Roxie
