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.

Spring Is Here!

 Hilary   I'm attaching a photo of glass by don shepard (crystal my favorite)  and a photo of you (from local magazine).
Crystal glass - Blenko crystal is best in Spring.  I use it for all the flowers from my garden, and also to serve foods.  
My all time favorite blenko color is peacock.  I have everything Blenko made in peacock.  I wish they would bring it back.  Will you publish this and also ask Blenko to again make peacock.

NOT especially good examples of DS's work at Blenko.
Blenko never did a good crackle.

Today some one at Blenko mentioned your family has a critical terminal illness. I am so sorry to learn of and I want to send you a card. Is there a address for Blenko Project or even work address so I might send a cheer you up card.
You do so much for so many. Thank you.

Twice a week I email Glassdoc with questiions. This isn't true. If there were an illness in her family I would know.

We also write weekly to the the blenko project with glass answers or questions.
We are 100% certain no one in Hilery's family is ill.
There was an auto accident a year ago but nothing since.

I too am certain Doc Glass is OK, and no one is ill in her family.
I spoke - in person - with them last week.

I wouldn't recommend sending anything. Two years ago I sent flowers to her home, the florist phoned to say the flowers were refused.

People, please focus on glass. I don't think it's appropriate to discuss hillary's personal life on a public forum.
