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.

This field study gives us the opportunity to consider the artists’ dedication and creativity that each has brought to their art practice, contributing to our regional cultural landscape.

Yes. Check with Hillery but I am certain Marvin and many other 'famous ' glass blowers worked with Blenko and WVa Glass manufacturers on a project summer of 82 - or 83.
