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.

Does Blenko make the animals or miniature items I see in the older catalogs.
The 2015 Blenko Glass catalog is on line. We don't see animals listed. Often times we have found unique items ( not in the catalog) at the Blenko Glass Visitor Center in Milton.
My suggestion is to visit the store and ask, or phone Blenko Glass and ask if the gift shop has
the item you are searching.
Last we were in Milton, the Gift Shop had a large selection of paper weights.

What happen to Osburn Glass?
Did he return to Blenko? Is he in good health?
We were in Milton for first time in many years, just heard Red Powers passed.
If you know anything about Osburn please share.
We also enjoyed Dave Osburn's Glass ( see photo of limited edition clown).
I'm sorry to say I don't know anything about Dave - the Glass Shop closed several years ago.
If anyone has answers for Arlene please respond by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org
and we'll either forward or publish.
