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.

It's no secret - I admire and collect Blenko Angels.  My favorite Angels were made by retired Blenko Glass Foreman Les Womack.  For many years Les has returned to Blenko for 2-4 weeks to assist with making Angels and other Holiday Ornaments.   Each year I speak of how important an Angel ( a Blenko Angel) can be - the angel is a perfect gift in times of joy and sorrow.   Blog Reader Makita sent me the following info about Angels in other faiths.  Since she stated she was Bahai I am including what she sent about the role of Angel in the Bahai Faith.  hjh

Bahá'í Faith

In 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.
