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.

Arlon Bayliss photos

Blenko. BLenko. BLenko. Blenko. Blenko. Blenko.

Thank you for the photos of Arlon Bayliss - Blenko Glass designer.
Blog readers and Blenko Collectors seem to agree he is one of the best
things to happen at Blenko in decades.

Hillary, Good Morning,

Hope you are doing well and staying busy with everything.

The attached are the pictures of Arlon Bayliss with Chris Schifflet, one of the Blenko BD 2011 glass collector.

Could you please post this picture in the blog. I think there are several of these pictures which were missed from the original email in the post for the BD 2011 event.

Thank you,

I tried to write to ask Blenko for the link to this blog
and the mail was returned could you post the blenko addresses?
If there is an individual one for Katie the manager I'd like this.
The cards - the special Blenko paper crafts and the cards with photos I use to buy are no longer offered.
I'd like to ask her not only to provide the link for this blog but to offer the paper craft blenko cards
and thephotos of workers cards.
Both added a touch of panche to my blenko gifts.

Blenko has not placed another order for my cards, but they are available in my Etsy shop -
The Renaissance Woman - I don't have a lot of stock in the shop at the moment, I just finished a HUGE order for Hillary. If you don't see the color or colors you want, convo me, and I will create a custom listing for you. Thanks for asking!

Thank you Diane.
I have thus far received no response to my emails to Hillary asking that she list the blog on Blenko or Blenko to ask that they carry cards and list the blog.

Please know I sent the request to Blenko Glass - the decision now is Blenko's.
Carrying cards representing Blenko water bottle, homemade works of art yet inexpensive
seems an appropriate choice.
So does linking to a blog that was devoted to Blenko and Blenko Collecting - or a web site that doesn't profit from selling Blenko.
These things sounds like 'no brainers' but hey I'm a dentist and have no experience running a glass company. Lets wait and see if these things
are approved.
