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.

A couple of pre-designer pieces that have found their way into the collection recently. I found the Amethyst Blenko #375 two handled vase in a antique store in Denton, Texas. What makes it unusual to me is that it is crackle. Before this I had only seen these in the optic bodies of which I have several nice examples in my collection. The other piece is a Ruby Blenko #488.
