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.

Blenko Garden Party in May

Dear Hillary,

Blenko's garden party will be May 13, 14, and 15th.  They will be selling some of my stained glass pieces there under the name of Splash of Glass.  All are one-of-a-kind creations using only Blenko stained glass.  What's really cool is that the majority of glass I use is from an old scrap pile I found of beautiful, discontinued colors - some being as old as 70 - 80 years. Over the years, Blenko has had over 1,400 different shades of stained glass! 

Attached are a few samples of the fun and colorful pieces I like to make that will be available for purchase at the garden party.

Thank you!

Brenda Ellis
