We visited Blenko due to an interest in the beautiful colors of glass they produce. We were able to watch the craftsmen blowing and shaping the glass into art objects. We went to the work area, came back through the little museum on the second floor, toured that shop and then went back to watch a different item being made.... More

I've visited Blenko several times, but this trip was really disappointing. The outside and entry gronds weren't kept up and looked tired and old. The sales room wasn't stocked with anything new and looked short of stock also. The staff was friendly and helpful, but not enthusiastic. It didn't help that the production area was also shut down, so be... More

Just back from a trip to Blenko to buy a special birthday gift and we were very impressed! Bought this fall's featured pitcher/vase and it is beautiful. A part of WV's art history!

My wife has been to Blenko a number of times over the years but it had been a number of years since she had been so this was a great treat. I had never been and found it interesting. We went on a weekend and there are no tours on the weekend.

My grandfather would always bring us to Blenko Glass when we visited in the summer when we were kids and it is exactly as I remembered it. I did take my son this time so he could watch some of the workers in action in the factory just like I did when I was a kid. They were not making... More

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
