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.

hopes Bankruptcy Court Judge Ronald G. Pearson will approve that plan at a hearing Dec. 12.

Steve Thomas, an attorney for Blenko, said Dec. 7 that the company's creditors have reviewed the reorganization plan. All the creditors who voted have voted for the plan, and none objected. Unless Pearson has questions, the plan should be approved at the Dec. 12 hearing, he said.

Blenko has continued to operate since it filed for Chapter 11 protection in May 2011.

"They will emerge from bankruptcy and they will repay the creditors according to the plan that was filed," Thomas said.

Glasdoc this is good news - Blenko will repay creditors.

Late last night I learned of Joy Blenko's death and your Uncle's illness. Please know our prayers are coming your way.
Thank you for the blenko project and the blog.
I appreciate the photos, the info - when available- the comments - the good the bad and the very ugly.
Wishing you and the adorable Mz B a happy holiday.
Next year let us all plan to do a vintage car show in Canada or Europe. Life has become too serious.

OK so blenko is paying off their debts, now will the people who bash Katy for her lack of business degree and experience - back off!
Obviously what she is doing works!

No interest in the vase
this post should also ask for donations to Manna Meal
Manna Meal feeds thousands of people weekly.
Volunteer is you don't have extra money or do both.
We have a food pantry here in Martinsburg yearly we donate one of our garden spaces and everything it produces.
Wonderful program.

Now big question for you Glassdoc
did Purple Moon donate the glass? My guess is they did.
Blenko is no longer known to support local charities in the way it did prior to 2007.
