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.

I am attaching photos of a Don Shepard floor vase I found. I would be interested in more information about the vase. Also I am interested in selling the vase. It stands 21 1/2 inches tall and 8 inches in diameter across the bottom. It is in great condition with no chips, cracks or signs of wear.
Thank you for your consideration,

Another photo from the weekend is of two of my personal favorites.
A nice pair of Blenko 6731's in Plum and Honey. These were designed by Joel
Myers and have a wonderful swirl texture to them. The vases are a pointed
elliptical shape with cut and polished top rim.
Hope you enjoy,

Just wanted to forward some new photos that I shot this past weekend with
Kayla's new camera.
From the Left is a Blenko #6032 , Blenko #617, and Blenko #6033. All were
designed by Wayne Husted and are in Blenko's wonderful Tangerine.
Hope you and the blog folks enjoy,

Bahá'í FaithIn his Book of Certitude Bahá’u’lláh, founder of the Bahá’í Faith, describes angels as people who "have consumed, with the fire of the love of God, all human traits and limitations", and have "clothed themselves" with angelic attributes and have become "endowed with the attributes of the spiritual". 'Abdu’l-Bahá describes angels as the "confirmations of God and His celestial powers" and as "blessed beings who have severed all ties with this nether world" and "been released from the chains of self", and "revealers of God’s abounding grace". The Bahá’í writings also refer to the Concourse on High, an angelic host, and the Maid of Heaven of Bahá’u’lláh's vision.
