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.

You have these 50 or so photos from Bruce with
colors labeled why not take these and
add a color chart to the blenko project?
I would be willing to search for years each color was produced and help in this way.
Hilery having everything - all blenko info in one location is important - now blenko collectors have some blenko archives has some and you have some
expand and make the blenko proj better.

@penny: Its been on my to do list. However, doing the color page requires input from readers like you. I just handle the technical aspects of the website. I have no idea what individual colors are, and how to distinguish between them. I was 'volunteered' for this, and I did not know about blenko also until 1.5 years ago.

If you can help out, it will be nice.

Not Penny but if you would get the master email list from Glassdoc and sent an email saying what you need many of us are retired and have a bit of free time.
Blenko interest is not high and has not been high for some time.
All the Blenko cheerleaders moved on but we should be able to get what you need within a few 6 or so weeks.
