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.

43rd Glass Art Society Conference

If you have the time for this GAS conference - I recommend attending.   We went to the conference several years ago when it was held in Pittsburgh.
Excellent conference with opportunity to purchase gas at an auction and many opportunities for networking with this small glass community.  hjh
