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.

"Glassblowing is an intense art; a heady mix of heat, danger, skill and beauty."
NIC PRICE, examiner.com.au

Blenko offers the opportunity to
see this Intense Art - watch glass being made, then buy the glass.
What could be sweeter?
We enjoy each visit to Blenko - You will also.
the WV Birthday is a hard core event, people stand in line for hours and talk nothing but glass
not for everyone

The Visitor Center will be opening at 8am on Saturday for the WV Day Event, not the normal 9am as stated. You can see pictures of the vase on heralddispatch.com under the photo galleries. Blenko is not closed. The vase does normally sell out so we suggest that you arrive no later than 6am to get in line. No phone orders.
