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.

Hilery what is the name of the indian food place in Charleston?
My friends were there last weekend and couldn't find it
they eventually drove to huntington for food.
Perhaps the place closed? If so do you know another?
Recommendations for foods when in Charleston.
Other than Starbuck Coffee or the mall.

In answer to the color question: I was approached over a year ago to try and prepare some photos that would represent the various designers and also produce a color table for the blog. Several of these were shot with those goals in mind. V has yet to load approximately eighty additional photos at this time and is working to load photos for the pre 1947 , Don Shepherd, and other photos that are backlogged along with Blenko color pallet photos. He was slowed down by my photos not being watermarked which he has graciously done to preserve my copyright. There are additional collectors who have been assembling photos as well which I assume will also appear here on the blog at some future date.
Thanks for your inquiry.
