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 Project Seeks New Volunteers.

The Blenko Project has several on going programs.
We attempt to assist new collectors with finding proper ID for their glass.
We prefer to assist novice collectors, NOT experienced sellers of Blenko.
We will assist anyone, but will not identify more than 6 piece per individual per year.
We are all volunteers,  we have day jobs, families and little free time.
We are NOT paid by BLENKO or anyone else.  Everyone is a Volunteer!
We are all professionals,  who collect WVA Glass or Blenko Glass or in the case of one volunteer
not a collector but one who appreciates research and  helping others.

IF you are familiar with BLENKO and wish to assist with identifications, please contact us.  We won't ask you to identify more than one item per month - unless you ask for additional.

We also need help maintaining the BLENKO PROJECT www.blenkoproject.org website.  We are currently behind with uploading the new glass items.
Loading the Blenko Glass events calendar
We recently lost our devoted webmaster to a full time professorship and a new family.
One person can do these things in about 5 -6 hours per week.
If you can assist please contact us at TheBlenkoProject@aol.com.

If you need immediate identification for your Glass.  Consider the Blenko Glass catalogues that are online www.blenkoproject.org   or reviewing The Blenko Collectors Four,   The Blenko Collectors Face book,  The Blenko Glass Face book,  many times you will find your glass item within one hour of searching. 
Currently we are about nine (9) months behind in identifying glass.  Our customary  delay is 90 days.

Thank you for reading the Blenko - Heart of Glass Blog,  for collecting BLENKO, for caring about West Virginia Glass.

Suggestion: Open your emails.
We have tried to volunteer for 6 months.
Another suggestion is to post on this blog
the glass to be ID and ask for group help.
Yet another suggestion is to return to daily post
and add more photos.
Thank You.
