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.

Request keep coming for Specht of Texas Blenko Photos!

Hi Hillary,
I am going to send four photos through tonight if I can get my act together. The first is this nice grouping of Husted designed vases in Gold and Jonquil.
From the left is the Blenko #595 (9 1/2") with a nice tall Blenko #5716 (19 1/2") and on the right is a Blenko #554 (11 3/4")
Hope you and the blog readers enjoy.

Hello Bruce
Until today I've always said i hate the gold blenko colors.
Your photo is beautiful and these are not the ' gold' of today?? This is a question.
Its different right?

Paul Jordan here,
want to say hello to everyone.
My ability to access has been spotty this year. Wonderful to see that Hilary continues her efforts on behalf of our State and WV Glass and most especially
her Blenko.
To Mr. V, I applaud your efforts to improve blog rating and traffic.
Several friends and I tried 2 years ago with no success. Hilary needed to change setting etc and she was unwilling.
This is a good blog, for beginners and or those who want to become involved in collecting network.
We expect to return to WV in 6 weeks, perhaps in time for the first snow fall.
