Arlon Baylis - Blenko Glass Designer & Much More.
Many collectors agree his addition to the West Virginia Birthday Series - are among the 'best' of this series. Yearly devotee to the WV Birthday - Blenko series wait patiently to for Mr. Bayliss 's new design. Arlon Bayliss understands the Birthday Collectors - he knows we like W.Va. Glass but we expect something very special each year!
The Blenko Project often suggest to new Collectors think search only for the WV Birthday Vases made by Bayliss. This collection ( WVBD/ Blenko ) spans many decades and its difficult to acquire a full collection. Our last count was 8 complete sets ( including the one housed at WVU in Morgantown).
