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.

Seeing photos of glass belonging to other collectors is the best.
Thank you Hilary, thank you to those who send photos.
Totally new to collecting Blenko and American.
All my extra cash is now in the hands of on line sellers, with the photos I'll have items to search for in area shops.
Question: Where do I find the catalog you mentioned? I wrote to Blenko to ask about purchasing old catalogs thus far no one has either charged my card or sent catalogs.
