"Blenko Glass Company has been a family owned and operated company since 1893. They have been in Milton, WV since 1921.
Exquisite color, skilled craftsmen, and imaginative designs have made Blenko famous in the time-honored craft of hand-blown
glass. In a world of ever-increasing automation, they at Blenko, pride themselves in paying particular attention to the forms and designs of their handmade products. "
"Self-taught potter and lover of philosophy Brian VanNostrand lives a life of simplicity and independence in Hacker Valley, West Virginia."
"Each ceramic design by Brian VanNostrand is an original signed by the artist. The pieces are made from blends of many different clays and minerals; some mined in the vicinity of his West Virginia home. The basic shapes are produced on the potter’s wheel. The glazes and surface finishes are original formulae developed by Mr. VanNostrand."
"The pieces are exposed directly to the flame of the wood in the kiln. The flame and airborne wood ash interact in spectacular fashion with the colors and glazes applied by the artist before firing. The finished forms tend to appear still hot visually “burn” with an inner life and intensity."
"Many years ago, Matt Ellison attended his brother’s wedding in France. All the guests were matched with French hosts, and his did not speak English, and he did not speak French. There were hours of awkward silence during their 3-4-hour dining experience. However, there was one saving grace, a fish shaped water pitcher that “gurgled” while pouring water. Mr. Ellison found himself drinking more water than wine as the water pitcher made everyone smile and would break up the awkwardness that came with the language barrier. "
"We found that for those that enjoy giving unique gifts these adorable Gurgle Pots make a great way to give flowers to your loved ones, and they can continue to use the Gurgle Pot for years to come…remembering you with every pour."
Luca + Danni
"Our childhood summers were spent in our family’s factory watching our father create beautiful, handcrafted jewelry. We were amazed at how he could envision a piece before it was made, oftentimes seeing the finished product even before the sketches were complete. We find a lot of our inspiration in his factory and we love the ability to weave in part of that history in every piece that we handcraft at Luca + Danni."
"We are proud to carry on a deeply rooted family tradition and to handcraft jewelry that is uncompromised in its construction. We are born in the USA and we would not have it any other way. "
"It all started with an ah-ha moment in 2004 at the founder, Nora Fleming’s, pottery shop outside Chicago, Illinois. Realizing the power of simplicity, Nora was inspired to create neutral platters with colorful minis that interchange through all of life’s seasons and occasions. Two years later Nora’s brother, Jon became her business partner; giving the company the balance and creativity needed for success. "
HOW IT WORKS
Step 1. Select a platter and your desired minis
Step 2. Dab water in the hole of the platter
Step 3. Push mini through to, and pull through the bottom
