Blenko Glass - Helps to Make Life Simple!

William Morris founder of Arts n Crafts Movement wrote:
" Have nothing in your home that you do not KNOW to be USEFUL and BEAUTIFUL!

Blenko is always useful - its made in a factory - usually hand blown into a mold or free formed by the craftsman.   Blenko is always beautiful!

Blenko is perfect in the Arts n Crafts ( think Frank Lloyd Wright) or a Victorian Home - Blenko is
unique, colorful and 'fits in most anywhere.'

My nana always said " beauty is in the eye of the beholder" 

If you don't own Blenko Glass.  May I suggest you visit the TAMARACK
