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.

Valentine's Day is Also for Dogs! Think Blenko Glass water & food bowls.

It's Febuary and Valentine's Day is near.  This year I'd like to suggest you consider picking up Blenko bowls ( glass bowls - very thick and heavy)  to use for water and food.  Your four legged babies will appreciate the offering.   My parents own a Bichon Frise - Mordi  who is now 17,  Mordi came to live with my parents when I went away to college -  he is what use to be called 'an empty nester' dog.  Mordi was 6 when he came to live with us.  In his former life he was a 'shop dog' for a family owned florist.  There was a divorce, a bankruptcy and Mordi became homeless.  
    Mordi has grown accustom  to Blenko water and food bowls.   
    Check out the table with clearance bowls at the Blenko Glass gift shop.   You'll find many unique ways to show your Blenko colors.
     At my Kanawha City home -  Ms B ( my bichon) does not drink from Blenko - however Blenko leaf bowls sit on top of my bird feeders for use as bird baths.   Blenko www.blenkoglass.com  has a unique, and perfect gift for everyone.   Think Blenko - when you need a gift.

When I did a tour of the Blenko factory, I noticed many older Blenko bowls filled with cat food and water located in the plant.
Thus this is not a new idea.
Glass is easy to clean, and disinfect. Glass is not made in China . . . currently most dog treats and many dog foods are made not in USA. Purina now has many treats made in China. Dangerous to feed animals foods made outside USA. Plastic isn't healthy for animals or people.

You didn't do Ground Hog Day. Next year do it
and ask Dr Kevin from Marshall University School of Meterology to provide you info.

If you'll send the contact info for Dr Kevin at Marshall - we will contact him. Send to theblenkoproject@aol.com

Lewis Mordi is indeed an older dog.

RE: new idea - my Grandma Fran use to say - there is nothing new on this earth - we rarely claim to be original or an expert in any area.

I met this dog at Blenko in 2007 or 8
it was a summer day, he was laying under a tree watching a group of ladies do yard work.
I remembered the name Mordi - I assumed he belong to Blenko family and was accompanying a crew at work.

Did you enjoy the glass garden? I've wanted to visit
the garden, when we were there the door in back was locked.
Anyone have photos of this area created by Joel Myers?
