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.

Blenko - Variations Designed by Husted

Wayne Husted returned to Blenko Glass  to create a series entitled  Variations.     Variations was a series of water bottles - each unique - all designed by Husted.   There were twelve in total.
Each subscription was for 3.   They were made quarterly.   In total less than 50 subscriptions were sold.
The Blenko Project now has photos of the entire Variations collection - which we ( Dr V) plans to add to the website  www.blenkoproject.org   however,  prior to adding these vases we need
to identify the vases. 
If you own this series or have knowledge of the series  please write to us at
TheBlenkoProject  at aol.com.    
We need to know what more about the series - what 3 vases constitute a set?   Base information.

 We have been told four additional vases were made -- these were a variation of the basic 12 / altered only by color .  If you have information  please share your knowledge.

Blenko Project needs your assistance in properly labeling the 12 vases that make up the Variations by Husted.
