Blenko has a wonderful shop with a large selection of their glassware at a discounted rate. The glassware made here ranges from everyday functional to beautiful art pieces that you will want to put on display throughout your home. Blenko offers viewings of the glass being made. You can watch the entire process from red-hot liquid glass, through the shaping... More

I used to live in Charleston in the mid-60s. Then, as an adolescent, Milton seemed far away. The interstate made this factory much closer-- almost suburban. Although I left the area 46 years ago, in my few returns I always include a visit. It's like a stop on a pilgrimage, a ritual, a part of a memory. My house has... More

Make sure you go when glass is being made, only 4 days a week. Work here is not at a frenzied pace, but after you watch the artisans in motion for awhile you realize there is a well orchestrated motion to everything. Interesting watching the various hand blown shapes come to life. Even older children will enjoy seeing the hot... More

We enjoyed our visit here, it was most interesting and informative, and some nice stuff to buy. We had heard about this company as they make the awards for the CMA's

We are originally from Pea Ridge, and like to visit WV every few years and Blenko is always a must see stop for us. We were there on March 17th and loved going to their shop and seeing all of the beautiful glass fixtures and creations. However, our biggest disappointment, (including this time) is that we always seem to come... More

Especially great when signing by the Blenkos and holiday events. I have not tried the classes, but friends said they were good values. I

Blenko Glass is the quintessential small town business. Many of the employees have worked for Blenko for decades, their stained glass is world class. Weekdays you can watch glass being blown and pieces being created, and buy stained glass (if you're lucky, you can buy partial or 'seconds" sheets at a discount). Many come to get the colorful discarded shards.... More

Was so nice to visit and lovely items in Gift shop. Do not forget to use the coupons in the store before you make your purchase. Also go to the hot observation deck and watch the glass being made.

This factory that produces hand-blown and molded glass is one of our FAVORITE places to visit (and SHOP!) anytime we are in West Virginia. About 20 miles west of Charleston, the gift shop is always open - and the gallery where you can stand and watch these artists create such fantastic works in molten glass is a show not to... More
