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.

Hilery, Does Blenko make any architectural size glass. The big bottles I often see on ebay.
Nothing is pictured in the online catalog.
Deb, Arlon Bayliss was at Blenko recently for one entire week, I can't wait to see what
wonderful new designs Bayliss and the talented Blenko Craftsmen will be offering this year.
On a recent visit to the Blenko Glass Gift Shop we saw large bottles for sale. If you don't live near enough to visit - phone Blenko Glass, they will take your charge card and mail the glass
to your home.

I felt good about my purchase.
Readers, If you missed the 2014 annual warehouse sale - mark your 2015 calendar. This sale improves yearly. Amazing prices on unique Blenko and also the run of the mill Blenko.
We recommend doing your Xmas and other gift shopping in April at the Yearly Warehouse Sale.

These 12 vases were sold by special order only - four offerings each had three bottles.
At time of purchase they were appropriately $450 per the three plus postage.
The number sold is questionable. Some research indicates there were 40 people who subscribed for the entire series.
Blenko also sold the 2nds at the Visitors Centers. Wayne Husted also sold Artist Proofs and
some Artist Proofs for each of the 12.
This series as with most of the unique and quality items sold by Blenko Glass www.blenkoglass.com has increased in value .
If you own the Variations Series, or have additional info - let us know and we'll add new information to the Blenko Project www.blenkoproject.org. website.
