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.

TEXAS Sunshine


A nice grouping of Myers designed vases. The taller ones (14") are 6839's in Tangerine and Lemon Crackle. The smaller version (10") is the 688 in Turquoise. The Tangerine piece I just picked up mis-listed on Ebay for $21.00. I like to believe that my photo does it justice but in this case it is does not. Just explodes in the Texas sunshine. Enjoy, Bruce

I just tried to access the Osburn Modern Glass website, and got a notice that "this website has been disabled" Steve

Steve:
The word I received is
Osburn is revamping his website to include his new 2011 designs.
It'll be up and running in a week or so.

Bruce your photos are awesome.
I have a large folder of the photos, as we glass hunt I use them to reference color and design.
