March is The Animal - Kingdom at Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass' Dean is hosting a month long ' Animal Kingdom ' event.
As a child - I would take my allowance to Blenko each month and purchase a Blenko critter -  many were made with molds,  or made by hand by glass blowers - at this time the blenko craftsmen were allowed to sell their individual creations in the gift shop.
It isn't necessary to collector to attend. 
Bring your family - visit Blenko -

During the ENTIRE month of March Blenko makes an effort to produce a true zoo of glass animals.  We look back to molds and ideas from our past as well as reaching forward. Join us any time in March at our Visitors Center to explore our glass menagerie. A wide selection is also offered on line or by calling our visitors center to inquire what is on hand.
We have started making Glass Animals for our March "Animal Kingdom" event. We are searching high and low in the factory to find any old molds of animal. And we are making a few, a limited number of each. We will offer them in the Visitor Center beginning March 1, 2017. You may call then to order. For now- be assured we are exploring, creating and having fun making both molded and free hand animals for your consideration in March.

Check the www.blenkoglass.com  for updates about this event and perhaps photos of items being made.
We'll also update as we get new info.

Will My Blenko Glass increase in Value ?

Will my glass increase in value.  I'm frequently ask this question.  My response is,  buy only what you love and want to live with.  Then increase or decrease in value is unimportant.  Today I received this note from GD. 
Hillary I hope you will publish this.
Friend ask why collect Blenko - it does not increase in price, it breaks and its made in WVa why not Italian Glass or Waterford they increase.
I'm attaching a photo and offer to sell a pair of Anderson Blenko bottles.   I have four of these my Nene bought from Blenko long ago - we thought they might be worth couple hundred now she paid less than $25 @ at the 2nds store ran by Marion Blenko.
Today I found this.  Please pass along so others will know. 1) Check the prices before you sell. 2) Blenko does increase in price - when the design and color are good - the increase can be large.

Blenko Glass. Water Bottle Week Jan 23-29 2017

Thanks to TM for sharing this with our readers.

If this is early December - then 2017 cannot be far away. We have had our 2017 schedule of events on our social media sites for some time. It is time to look at details and exciting specifics for our January and February events that are approaching soon.

Our inaugural Water Bottle Week is 23- 29 January, 2017. Nothing has become more icon for Blenko glass, and perhaps for West Virginia glass, than our classic #384 water bottle made since 1938! We have set aside one entire week to celebrate and play with this form.

Blenko will offer Make Your Own water bottle classes, follow us on social media to learn the registration date, etc.There will be a photo contest open to the public for images of water bottle collections, water bottles in use, etc. Two winning photos will be awarded a cash prize and those images will then be used by Blenko to produce postcards for sale in the company store. We will have photo opportunities with our very own living, talking human Water Bottle. Did we mention this is a FUN event? Special editions of color, new colors, and playful adaptation of the form will all be offered for sale in the company store. The event is a must for those who enjoy or love our #384 water bottles.

Almost immediately on the heels of the Water Bottle Week Blenko celebrates an entire month of The Animal Kingdom. We are making offhand and dump mouded animals calling upon our past to fill our ark of diverse critters. We will open our on-site and on-line efforts to populate a glass zoo at your home Wednesday February 1. Handmade penguins, large cast walrus, small whales, and on the list goes.
Follow us on social media to catch sightings of the animals we are making in anticipation of the event. Plan to visit us in Milton or go on your own safari on line to bag some Blenko members of the animal kingdom!

Exciting days are in store for you from the hot furnaces of Blenko Glass and our skilled artisans. Be sure to join us this winter.

Blenko Glass Schedule of Events. 2017

This is a list of current schedule events for 2017.
Blenko Project has no additional information.  I would suggest frequently checking the Blenko Glass web site.  Blenko Glass Facebook page - which is monitored by Travis Mounts and is the most up to date source of factory information.  Also
Photo - Texas Blenko Collection
 The Blenko Glass Collectors have a facebook page.   The Ohio Blenko Glass Collectors
frequently update their site to include all activities for WV  and American collectors on the east coast.
    The Blenko Project  www.blenkoproject.org  web site is a bit out of date ( we have not replaced our volunteer IT person) so I am not recommending this site for current info.  It remains a basic source of Blenko history and Blenko Catalogs.
    For Blenko colors -  we use Blenko Collectors Four web site,  I've been told the Blenko Collectors Facebook group is preparing a color chart including sample for each color.   These are much needed
    If you are a WVA Glass or Blenko Glass Collector we encourage you to become involved in one or more of the above groups.

You are correct this is the same or very similar to the Blenko waterbottle.

Q and A with WV Scientific Glass Blower, Mike Hale


Recently I had the privilege of interviewing a local Scientific Glassblower, Mike Hale of MATRIC.  
 Scientific glassblowers provide highly specialized glass apparatus for use in laboratory work. A West Virginia native, Mr. Hale is the only glassblower working in Research and Development in the state.

Interview Below.
Watch the blog later in the week for opportunity to buy some of Mr. Hale's holiday pieces!


I read in your Matric bio that you learned Scientific Glassblowing from your father -
Where did your dad work?  How did your dad learn this craft?  How long was he a glassblower?
My Dad got his first job with DuPont in the early 50's. He got a lay-off notice in 1958 I believe. He never returned to DuPont but shortly there after started working for Union Carbide. He worked in several different fields started out in construction where he continued to bid out into other fields such as millwright, rigger, pipe fitter to name a few. He started working in the lab at Institute in the late 60's where he became good friends with the glassblower. He would spend most of his spare time watching and learning from him. The gentleman got ill and had to retire, but before he did he was able to train my father to take his place. He worked at the Institute plant until 1978. He then transferred to the Tech  Park in South Charleston to take over the glassblowing duties for the labs.
He worked at the park until he retired in 1992 He had over 20 years in as a glassblower when he retired. He trained me to take his place.
I am working with the same equipment my father used that has been in the glass shop since the early 60's.
I have been here almost 25 years now. I was fortunate enough to be able to buy all of my glassblowing equipment from Dow Chemical after my lay-off. This allowed me to be able to stay in the area and work for MATRIC for witch I am most grateful! 

 Do you know of any other scientific glass blowers in WV?  

I believe I am the only scientific glassblower still working in the R&D industry in the state of West Virginia. West Virginia University does have a glassblower that works in the chemistry department but  I'm not sure what his capabilities are.

What is your educational background?  Is this type glass work part of any college curriculum? What is the timeline for training/apprenticeship? 
Do you know of y any schools or apprenticeship programs for people interested in scientific glass blowing? 
How many years before you mastered the skill?

I have no formal training in glassblowing. I was taught by my father and worked with him for 4 years before I was doing it on my own. I would say I have never fully masters glassblowing. I continue to learn and gain knowledge every year. In the scientific glassblowing industry it takes 10 years to be considered a master craftsman. Salem Community College in New Jersey offers a 2 year associate in applied science degree. After graduation students still face 4-6 years of apprenticeship period to become a journeyman glassblower.

 What types of items do you make for work? 
I make a wide range of scientific glassware for use in the labs at MATRIC. Glass columns, condensers, distillation equipment, air-free glassware to name a few. I also do a lot of repairs and modifications to existing glassware. I make and design glassware that is needed quickly and that cannot be purchased out of a catalog or on line. 

How did you discover you also have a talent for decorative glass blowing? 
I have always liked working with glass. So when I come to work its actually fun, especially if I'm asked to make something challenging. I love Christmas and thought it would be cool to learn how to make glass Christmas ornaments. I basically  learned by having an idea of what I wanted to make and keep shaping the glass until it looked like what I thought it should look like. So in other words just a whole lot of figuring out how to make an ornament and then keep making it until you get it right. It is really hard to explain how its made. One has to see it for themselves to understand the process.

Do you have any favorite pieces you have created? 

I like making hummingbirds and icicle ornaments. They are fun to make and people seem to like them. I also like making bells. They are fully functional and I tell people do not be afraid to ring them, they are quite tough despite looking very delicate.

Gearing up for Thanksgiving Dinner - Blenko Glass Company.

At our home,  we use Blenko Glass bowls for serving dishes at our parties.
If you aren't using your Blenko.  Please start.  Blenko is factory glass, made to be used.
It is durable.
It probably should not be put in the dishwasher,  but can be used year after year for serving.  The key is to rinse and wash and dry after use.
If you are hosting the Turkey Day meal,  consider BLENKO as an addition to your formal place settings.
Our family is Wedgewood Runnymede

In November 2015, the Glass Art Society and Chihuly Garden and Glass partnered to conduct an in-depth study of the state of glass art in America with the intent of researching the most active regions for glass art, and providing a benchmark to measure future growth and trends in the industry.
GMA Research firm was brought on to administer the study nationwide. The project included two phases -- a research phase that included in-depth interviews with industry leaders (collectors, gallery owners, educators, artists, etc.) and two surveys (one for the general public and one for Glass Art Society membership.
More than 2,200 people from across the nation responded, providing a statically accurate sample of the US population. The special exhibit at SOFA CHICAGO will be the first full presentation of the research findings including the top five trends from the study affecting the glass community at large, and works of art to elucidate those trends from galleries exhibiting at SOFA.
Pamela Koss, Executive Director, Glass Art Society and Michelle Bufano, Executive Director Chihuly Garden and Glass, will release the research results publicly for the first time during this lecture. A panel of artists, including Shelly Muzylowski Allen, Matt Eskuche, Andy Paiko, and Norwood Viviano will share work that exemplifies the predominant trends and contribute insight on the findings.
Artists represented in order of listing: Habatat Galleries, Royal Oak, MI (Muzylowski Allen and Eskuche); Wexler Gallery, Philadelphia, PA; Heller Gallery, New York, NY
Presented by the Glass Art Society in conjunction with the SOFA CHICAGO Special Exhibit Landscape of Glass in America

If you have the opportunity I would suggest attending this event.

Blenko Glass Company. Vintage miniatures

Texas Collection - miniatures
Hi Doc,

Some more older Blenko designs are these miniatures. For those folks with limited display room these are a wonderful way to brighten a windowsill. From the left you have a Blenko #3516F in Tangerine, Blenko #3516C in Cobalt, Blenko #3516B in Amber, Blenko #3516A in Sea Green, and a Blenko #3516G in Ruby. These are the earliest Miniatures that Blenko produced. The later designers, especially Husted, would design several groups of their own distinct miniature designs for Blenko.

Hope you and the readers enjoy,
Bruce S.

Snowmen. Blenko Glass Company

Blenko Glass Snowman 
For years you've heard me talk about the Blenko Glass Snowmen.   They began as a lunch hour creation - that workers gave to each other and their family members.
Then Blenko  Glass very wisely added them to the line .
Les Womack ( retired Factory Foreman ) was one of the best creators of snowmen and angels.
Until the mid 2000's he returned yearly to make enough of these for the Xmas season.
Currently Blenko has many craftsmen who make these Holiday Figures.

Blenko Glass Company and Kelsey Murphy - Match Made in Heaven

Blenko Glass is slowly stepping into the creation of a line of stunningly hand carved glass objects.
Internationally famous cameo glass artist Kelsey Murphy is becoming a partner with Blenko to create a very limited number of these hand crafted gems. Kelsey has carved on glass from all over the world but has long favored West Virginia glass. Some elaborate multiple layered pieces she created when at Pilgrim Glass do sell for tens of thousands of dollars each.

Blenko will work with Kelsey as she works magic with her art, carving it deeply into the surface of our glass, The result is unique, one of a kind objects. We do not anticipate creating more than 100 pieces, maximum, in any given year. The prices on our initial offerings will be between $500 and $700 dollars for each hand signed art work. We will have a modest beginning with only a few vases of one of our jewel-tone solid colors over crystal. We have already blown the next generation of objects for Kelsey to carve, they will be two-colored, hand carved top hats!

All of the Kelsey Blenko cameo will be hand signed Kelsey/Blenko and serially numbered with entry into her registry of all the pieces she has ever made. Recently Blenko hosted a film crew from PBS that is working on a documentary on Kelsey and her highly sought glass. Filmed at Blenko was our skilled artisans crafting layered pieces to her specifications for cameo carving. The documentary should be shown in 2017 and we anticipate a wave of interest in the wake of the film.

With such time consuming Kelsey carving and robust Blenko color we are confident these will open the doors to yet one more dimension of the versatility and exceptional quality of handmade Blenko. We are confident you will share our enthusiasm once you see these art works. The first pieces will be available in a few weeks. There will be no more than six total vases in the first offering, each unique

The interior glass reacts with the surface color creating minor striations and swirls of great intrigue in the subtle shading.
