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.

Going To Blenko This Weekend?

   The Heart of Glass blog needs your photos from Friday and Saturday.  
For several years a Texas collector ( Mr. PB) provided the blog with photos from the line ( which starts Friday after work and ends when the Gift Shop opens)  -  and photos of the event.
   Work commitments require Mr. PB.   to be out of the country June -Aug. this year.   We're asking other collectors to step up to help with photos for the blog.  
Please send photos to  theblenkoproject@aol.com .  Also add a line stating we have your permission to use the photo in this blog.
   Thank you

Are you going to do a separate page on web for Arlen Bayliss?
I am suggesting again
you do photos of everything he has designed.
He will be better known than JPM
who in my opinion is the most profitable of the Blenko designers.

I'll be there at 5 am Saturday morning, I will take a camera.
If I had a RV I would load my grandkids, perhaps next year we'll rent one for this event.

Dr Bob
The last ticket given out was 87
perhaps you'll want to arrive before 5am.
new process this year they give you the ticket when you arrive...we shall see how this works?

I arrived at 5am to learn the last ticket was given out at 6:15pm.
Next year we'll bring the g-kids
and come on the Sunday before - I'll bring my RV - fishing poles and we'll have a great week at Blenko.
I saw two RV's trying to get on the lot Friday late afternoon - lot was filled and they had to back up the hill.
Allowing RVs was a great administrative decision. It makes coming for more than one night easier.
