Heart of Glass - 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.

Another pair of Myers designed pieces. The diamond stoppered decanter is a
Blenko #6734 in Honey crackle. I actually bid on the decanter body and stopper
separately and waited with much anticipation to see if the stopper would fit the
body. Even though they traveled from opposite ends of the country they mated up
perfectly. The smaller vase in Plum is a Blenko #6614 in crackle finish. I have
tried for months to shoot this pair and only was able to pull it off with the
new equipment. Thank you Kayla.
Hope you enjoy,
