Oh My GOD this is to die for.

The photo is also beautiful, so very professional. Hinkle's photographer is one very talented person.
I am drooling at the sight of this.
WV Glass never looked Better!

BTW Blenko Factory is a perfect example of pigs fly!
No one would expect success

"When Pigs Fly" was my dearly departed Mothers favorite phrase.
Kudos to Ron Hinkle for the Ruby presentation and extra Kudos to the photgrapher and the person who gifted it to Glassdoc.
We own a couple Hinkle lamps, and often give Hinkle lamps for wedding gifts. Hilary why not do a month on smaller WV Glassmakers?
Anyone going to Blenko on June 19th? Several members of our bridge club mentioned making the trip, they will be first timers.
Oh the thrill of the line.

Littler than air this little pig with wings, also true love is lighter than air and stronger than steel and never ending for those who refuse to let go.
Blenko will always fly.

This is a great piece of art.

Beautiful though it is, Annu, I'd rather have you here with me than any gift.
