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 #5815 - Paper Fold Card

These photos come with a warning - It is very DIFFICULT to reproduce Diane's beautiful cards. These cards will be sold at the Blenko Glass Visitors Center.
We own 2 cards - they are triple matted and hang in the dining room of our Columbus home. hjh






Hillary,

I will freely admit that curiosity got the better of me here. I wondered how a different Blenko design might look as an iris fold project. The #5815 is a tall skinny silhuette. I used a rectangle temple for the design, tweaking it til it was the same size as the original cut out. A rectange calls for four patterns of paper, the one I only used three. . . . . . .

Thanks for the compliments. I'm not completely happy with this one - I need to figure out how to create a layout template specifically for this shape. I think the sample of the Winslow Anderson #920L came out better, but it's still "off" somehow. When I'm happy with it, I'll send Hillary another sample.

One more time let me say these are beautiful. I hope Blenko will sell online.
Getting to the VC isn't a weekly event sometimes not even a yearly event for most all.

Diane,

This is just beautiful. B and I could use some of these in future. Are you going to market them? Are they for sale? If so, please provide more info.
