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.

Is thepottery made in WV
using WV Clay?
Has he considered incorporating Blenko or other WV Glass?
We'll be relocating to the midwest soon is milwaukee miswest?
Anyway taking a job with the VA Hospital.
This should allow for more frequent visits to Blenko.
I've missed seeing the ducks on the pond, and the smell of the leaking pipes.

Question: My comments infrequently appear. I comment daily.
When they do appear the time stamp is incorrect. I comment after noon daily.
Why is this?
Question #2
How is Bruce? We haven't heard or seen his beautiful photos in a long while.

Turkey is to Thanksgiving what candles are to birthday cake. Or something like that. What we mean, of course, is that on Thanksgiving a lot of people expect to eat a lot of turkey.

It's what we do.
This year donate the Turkey $$$ to an animal shelter and use TOFURKEY instead.
Quorn makes a turkey that is delicious and only $10.

Give up Meat for Turkey Day
You'll have more energy for Blenko Blenko Blenko shopping!

Comments are dated as the blog manager reads the comments
Calif time is always used.
Bruce S. had a death in his family less than 2 months ago.
I would not expect participation for some time.
Perhaps your comments are not appearing as they are long, w/o proof or editing
