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.

Hilary never collected, she will take your glass and then gift it to a museum.
The girl gave a Birthday Vase collection to the university.
Cheerleader. Hilary is the Blenko cheerleader!

Why would Blenko made twisted glass for employees who work a festival?
Why not sell these to the people who visit the festival?
So many secrets at Blenko!

I have one of these twisted glass wands, from the first convention. It was a thank you for all the work we (the Board members) did to get the convention off the ground. I love the airtwist design, and it has a tangerine, almost ruby knob at the top.
