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.

The only Charcoal that I am aware of being produced by Blenko in 2012 was a mini water bottle that was available at the Festival of Glass. There must have been some other items in Charcoal as well because there were not that many Mini water bottles available. This batch of Charcoal had a purple tint to it.
In 2013 Blenko will again offer a mini water bottle which you can sign up for on the Blenko.com website. It will not be shipped until August. We can cross our fingers and hope that some other items will be made in Charcoal as well.

Sorry Anonymous,
I do not sell glass on line at this time nor do I plan too.

As for the comment that someone has a color I don't have in my collection I would welcome the challenge of again needing to "find" a piece to complete my collection. The only color that I believe might be out there is Rose' but I have never seen an example of such. But then again, I had never seen Charcoal until I stumbled across the piece and it is one of my favorite pieces now.
