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.

Forming a Collectors Group

Readers write frequently to ask about The Blenko Collectors Group
while we don't have an update on this group. You can form your own
Blenko Collectors Group. Sweetdoc hunts for Blenko and WV Glass with
a group of 10 -20 people depending on the weather - every other weekend
they go out in a couple of vans - often time its an overnight trip.

Everyone has a good time - there are few limits - Sweetdoc says limits
are the barb wire of real life. She does have minimum rules or boundaries for
membership and traveling with the group.

Sweetdoc reports their group began small, four Med docs and 2 pharm docs

later Sweetdocs Vet and 2 other neighbors joined and so the group and continues to grow.
Question - Do they fight over glass? You bet they do - but its friendly fire
always and the person who 'needs' the glass most usually wins.

Gather your friends and do a Blenko Hunt this upcoming weekend. Note: photo of limited edition Blenko Glass Bunny - you don't need to hunt for this one - he's available at Blenko Glass in Milton.
