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.

Blenko Glass. Heart of Glass Blog http://herald-dispatchblogs04.blogspot.com
May I ask how people use the Blenko in their homes? Other than tableware what does one do with all that Blenko?
We'll ask for photos - in my home - we use glass shelves and display the Blenko. We also daily use our Blenko glasses, dishes, vases etc. Blenko was made to be used. My parents have more than 100 unique Blenko items displayed behind bushes and on the bird house etc in their downtown Charleston home. Blenko doesn't promote the glass as a garden item - however - for the last 20+ years the glass in my parents yard has withstood the WV winters. Readers - How do you use or display your Blenko? This photo is from the www.theblenkoproject.org page - this collector uses Blenko as a part of his decor. Send your photos, suggestions etc for using Blenko.
