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 Glass - Marshall University Class for Teachers

Recently my child's teacher has become interested in WV Glass,  now he is also.
Marshall University received a grant to allow teachers to learn more about WV Glass so they might bring this knowledge to the classroom.
I know this is something you have been saying for the 7 years I've read this blog.
Were you excited to see this happen?  Will it happen in all of WVa?
Were you involved?  I want my child to know about all WVa 's  history.
Connie  Moore

Gandhi said you should " be the change you want to see in the world",    if you like the classroom attention to the glass industry's role in WVa  history  send a note stating this  to your principal,  tell the teacher how much you appreciate the lessons.
Offer to assist. 
Art Glass Panel located in the Blenko Glass Museum - upstairs Blenko Glass gift shop.
Thank you for collecting Blenko and for reading the Heart of Glass blog.

Wonderful news re: Marshall University.
The West Virginia State should also be doing this.
All WV schools should teach this part of the state's history.
