Blenko Glass - For Your Stain Glass Panels
Can you tell me what Blenko employee did this stain glass panel? We're building a new home and I want a glass panel in the dining room window. The window is 36 x 54. Do I need to provide a drawing or do I list what we would want in the panel? Next question is colors, how do I know what colors Blenko has. With my decorator we are using the crayola color names. Can you give me info about price and also how long it might take. We expect to be moved in within 16 -18 months.
This stain glass artwork is located upstairs of Blenko Glass in what is commonly called 'The Blenko Museum of Glass', the stain glass work was not created by Blenko Glass employees.
I'll write today to ask Blenko who did create this panel and forward the info, or you could phone 304 743 9081 to make this inquiry.
In our area Shoebe Glass located in Huntington, W.Va., Franklin Art Glass in Columbus, Ohio, and Amanda's Stain Glass in Charleston, WVa are stain glass artist that I could recommend.
Blenko Glass floor vases and lamps are available at the Blenko Glass Gift Shop in Milton, WV and on line. HJH
