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.

Saturday June 23rd WV Birthday Vase BLENKO GLASS

The vase designed by Arlon Bayliss & Teams goes on sale at 8 am -  you'll want to arrive 
several hours before Blenko opens.

This year Blenko Glass  continuing the gracious custom of glass signing -  you may have any purchase signed by Mr. Andy Blenko or Mr. Walter Blenko. 
The Blenko Glass teams have filled the shelves at the Visitors Center with glass you'll want to own.  After you purchase the Blenko WV Birthday Vase.  Return to the Gift Shop and spend several hours looking at the array of special glass.
Ernie our St Albans friend  designed plates with an image of Bayliss and the 2012 Vase which will be offered for sale.  These plates and Diane Webers' cards are the best non glass items I've seen in a long time- well actually Ernie's plate is fused glass.

Blenko -  where -  Made In USA  is a Given!   Buy Local  -  Made Local .   Blenko  has been buying Local for decades.   Everything in Blenko is Made In the USA and most everything is Made In WVa  by your friends and neighbors.
