The Blenko Project is now seeking photos

Jun. 11, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

The Blenko Project, www.blenkoproject.org, is a nonprofit group that focuses on archiving Blenko Glass and preserving the history of Blenko Glass, the craftsmen and the designers.

It was founded by Dr. Hillary Homburg, a Charleston dentist, in 2006. Homburg maintains a popular blog at www.herald-dispatch.com (scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the Heart of Glass blog in the center).

The Blenko Project is currently seeking photos of Blenko and collecting oral histories from glass workers and their families. If you own a collector or unique piece of Blenko Glass, If your family member worked at Blenko and you would like to assist with information about his employment or you need more information, please email TheBlenkoProject@aol.com.
