"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."
