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's New Design team has been busy - check out the www.blenkoglass.com website.
My favorite of the new items are the table lamps.   Since 2007  I've read notes from you asking about table lamps and shades and more importantly finials.
This team is addressing those needs.   If you haven't been to the Milton, WVa factory store - gift shop, you'll be surprised.  The gift shop is filled with colorful glass elegantly displaced.
Dean Six is an artist and a perfectionist - the gift shop improvements are a result of his desire to have things perfect for you the customer.   

Stack ‘em high!  This towering table lamp is likely to turn heads.
Matched with a mini cube finial and a locally sourced cherry wood base, the fixture stands approximately 36” tall. Assembled with an 8” harp, choose brass or nickel finish, fits a lampshade with a spider fitter. 
Lampshade sold separately 18”x17”x10” (Bottom Diameter, Top Diameter, Height) brass spider fitter, in Natural Burlap or Warm White Linen.  ( description and photos from www.blenkoglass.com)
