I have a question. Keep hearing Joe Myers designed the glass garden. What makes it a glass garden and what did he design? Is this the area near duck pond.
I'll look for answer
I apologize for the delay in responding. We are about 6 months behind with Blenko Project Mail.
The wood structure, the glass inserts in the wood structure were designed by Joel Myers when he worked with Blenko Glass. The 'bones' of the glass garden ( the plants and trees) were selected by Marion Blenko - wife of Bill Senior and Mother to Bill Junior. Mrs. Blenko was an avid gardener and loved exotic and unusual plants.
Blenko is currently in the process of enhancing the garden with glass brick and other items made by Blenko Glass.
May I suggest you visit - by walking inside the gift shop - thru the glass slider and out into the garden. Looking over the chain link fence doesn't allow one to view the special parts of this garden.
