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.

Mark Twain said : " The very ink with which history is written is merely fluid prejudice."
The Blenko Project is attempting a collective history of WVa Glass Workers. We are again accepting emails, and phone calls for interviews. If you prefer you may write your story
and email it to The Blenko Project @aol.com, or mail to 5513 Kanawha Ave. Charleston, W.Va. 25304 attention Blenko Project History.
While Dr. Homburg is a Blenko Glass Fan, the Project is all inclusive. Thus far we have
contacts for twelve of the companies.
If you are a former glass worker, or have worked in the Glass industry in WVa, or are a current employee with more than ten years, we'd like to include your photo and a brief history of your employment with photos of glass your shop made.
Please contact us.
