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.

Easter Baskets & . . . .

The very best baskets for Easter are made by BLENKO GLASS. These baskets last a life time. Can be used as a center piece, a bowl for candies, or in the bathroom to hold soaps.


The baskets are often found for under $70 in the Blenko Glass factory shop in Milton, WVa.
Bunnies for Easter or yard scapes can also be found at Blenko Glass.
www.blenkoproject.org for photos of the 87 Basket.
Our favorite basket was made by Don Shepperd in the 80s for use as a WV Birthday Piece - he called a ladies bonnet - we use this basket / bonnet to holdguest soaps and toiletries in a guest bedroom.
Blenko Rabbits ( available at the factory store in Milton) are often used in April Decor, some use the Blenko rabbits in their garden and porch scapes.
BLENKO GLASS think out side the box! Blenko has something for everyone on your list - and for every occasion.
