The Blenko family has operated their handmade glass business for four generations, since English immigrant William J. Blenko arrived in Kokomo, Indiana in 1893. Over the next three decades, Blenko would own and operate glass companies in Indiana, Pennsylvania and West Virgina with varying degrees of financial success.
It was not until he founded – in 1921 and at the age of 67 – the Eureka Glass Company in Milton, West Virginia was his family’s legacy ensured. The three generations that followed have grown that business into the Blenko Glass Company whose mold-blown glass is collected the world over and whose blown sheet glass, hand-spun rondels and dalle de verre cast glass are favored by many glass artists and restoration specialists.
