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.

Much nicer than in years past. Cheers to blenko. More limited editions or special items. Please let us know more about jingles involvement in blank. We 've collected Hinkle for ten plus years.

We got there at nine am....people were getting more than one. No reason to spend the night.

Yes! We were there and got the companion pieces, jug and the birthday piece. Surprisingly at 8am Saturday morning, the birthday piece was still not sold out. I got in line at 6:22am and was #114. Unusual according to others that have been there in past years.

I have a picture of the birthday piece and it's companions but do not know how to add it to this post. New to posting in blogs.

I didn't like this year's piece. In the past Bayliss designs stood on their own, this one I found lacking. With the addition of new manager also a glass artist perhaps change will arrive. Until then I'll buy Hinkle and Appalachian or vintage glass.
