Celebrating glass from the past with inspirations from today!

This year's theme is once again New Century Modern and in that spirit 2 Special Edition pieces have been specifically designed for the festival! August 6 through Sunday, August 8, we will offer a 15% off sale on most items in our Visitor Center Gift Shop and as an added bonus we have prepared a live setup form our hot shop floor so that you can still be a part of our glass making process.

Tune into our Facebook page around 9:30am EST on Friday, August 6 and watch as our talented craftsmen bring new life to historic shapes with modern style and inspirations.

Embracing our bold and vibrant colors, for the 2021 Festival of Glass, we have designed this show-stopping 13” tall vase in our stunning Turquoise and Citrine colors, Handcrafted with a diamond-optic bulbous base and long slender neck, this attention-grabbing vase is an absolute must have. The offsetting colors of the Turquoise vase paired with the elegantly paced Citrine wrap show why Blenko continues to be the most colorful name in glass!

Each Festival of Glass Vase will be stamped FOG and Blenko 2021 on the base to commemorate being part of this year’s festival.

This tumbler is the second piece in a recurring line of historic pieces meant to pay homage to the glass companies of WV gone by. Aptly named the Historic Glass Preservation Line, we will continue to explore the history of these great glass companies and revive some of their signature pieces to be offered annually at our Festival of Glass.

The second piece in this line of historic preservation belongs to the Morganton Glassware Guild.

This eclectic and functional tumbler was first designed in the 1960’s and was then aptly named ‘Festival’ as it is now part of our 2021 Festival of Glass. Enjoy a little piece of history with these stunning 5” tall glasses in our Charcoal and Citrine colors.
