Blenko Glass Company is honored to announce its 2024 West Virginia Day Piece, “Wavelength.” This year’s ‘Birthday’ piece is a 13.75-15” charger (wide, shallow bowl) in our classic Crystal with intricate white glass powder tracework in a diamond optic pattern to create a beautiful, radiating geometric design. The charger was designed by Creative Director James Arnett to echo and honor the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Radio Telescope, the largest steerable radio telescope in the world, located right in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains in Green Bank, West Virginia. Each of these pieces is profoundly handmade - and each shows off the technique and design in a unique, idiosyncratic way!

Blenko is excited to celebrate Green Bank and the profound impact it has had in our understanding of and connection to the vastness of space – and we thank the Green Bank Observatory for their generous access to their facilities and grounds for the photoshoot. There is so much to learn and celebrate in our scanning the skies and seeking intelligent life out there in the vastness of space. Green Bank and astronomy ask us fundamental questions about the nature of our life on Earth and the nature of life in the universe. We at Blenko are proud that our state has had such a far-reaching and fundamental impact on the development of astronomy and space research. 2024 has been Blenko’s “Year of New Space Age Design,” a theme that has allowed the company to celebrate both its midcentury Space Age innovation and cultural impact, and also draw attention to its evolutions as the company launches into a new golden era of handmade, richly-colored glass tableware.
