Hand Blown Glass
Magnificent color, skilled craftsmanship, and creative design
make Blenko the most colorful name in glass.
Using each vessel as a canvas, dollops of glass like drops of paint mark the surfaces in an expressive and unique pattern.
All items in the Dollop Family are available in Mint, Iris and Ice Blue color options, complete with animated Pawpaw dollops.
Ethereal traps of air are scattered in frozen chaos, like a cosmic and excited universe.
All items in the Cosmos Family are available in Crystal, Ice Blue, and Bronze color options, embellished with a flashing Pawpaw accent.
New Colors: Mint & Bronze
Creating new colors combines chemistry and artistry. This year we have concocted two new complimentary colors, Mint and Bronze, both hues pleasant to live with year round.
From formulating, adjusting, sampling and perfecting, we are thrilled with the vivid results. Our Mint green has garden tones, and our complex Bronze is a warm neutral with a soft pink cast.

"Stopped in as part of a "girls road trip" yesterday. This was a bucket list item for me. I loved EVERYTHING from the shop, the garden, the museum upstairs and the lovely staff! I was amazed at every little detail he knew and the history. More impressive was the great pride all the glass blowers took in their work-I could hear it in their voices and I was certain to tell them I appreciated them. His words, "We appreciate our customers who keep us in business". Thank you again, we will be back!"

"I attended a glass blowing event yesterday to make their iconic water bottle and I cannot express how much fun it was! The staff were super helpful and the experience was one I will never forget. The gift shop is full of beautiful pieces, and if you are interested in signing up for their glass blowing events— DO IT! Five stars!! I will say if you are interested in a class sign up right as the tickets go on sale. Tickets for the event I attended sold out within minutes."
