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.

I'm in Scottsdale, Ariz Its much to expensive to pay for heavy Blenko to be shipped to my home.
Are there dealers closer to me?
I'm fearful to purchase on ebay.
This is a great time to start purchasing Blenko Glass. They have recently hired a design team, that is energetic and the product has never been better.
www.blenkoglass.com ( Blenko Website) has a feature that allows you to enter your address and they find the nearest dealer and then provide you with his contact information.
Thank you for your interest in BLENKO GLASS.
Blenko has been making fine handcrafted glass for more than 100 years.

Blenko has a long history of discovering talented artist - JOEL PHILIP MYERS is perhaps one of the most admired Blenko Designers.
What you won't hear on these videos is Joel P Myers, had never worked with glass until he came to Blenko Glass. At Blenko he often stayed late and came in on weekends to learn to blow and manipulate glass.
Joel P Myers Blenko pieces that are signed can fetch up to $1500
most any JPM glass from period after Blenko sell for no less than $6000. Larger pieces
can bring upward of 30K.

Often it is my go to place for shopping - definitely for last minute out of town gifts.
For a few years I gave CHERYL's Cookies ( I discovered Cheryl's during my residency at Ohio State University) it was love a first taste. BUT everyone is concerned with health and calories. I returned to BLENKO - the water bottle is much less expensive than 12 Cheryl's cookies in a tin.
For Valentine's Day Blenko often makes a batch of PINK or Red, or something special just for this occasion.
GIVE the GIFT OF HANDCRAFTED MADE IN WVA GLASS this Valentine's Day.
