Blenko Glass: Behind the Scenes and Creating Iowa Sunrise

Blenko Glass: Behind the Scenes: This program takes viewers into the heat and heart of the Blenko glassworks to see how the beautiful, all-handmade, glassware is created. Each piece is unique and so are the artisans and members of the Blenko family who continue this proud, 100 year tradition.

Blenko Glass: Creating Iowa Sunrise: Iowa Public Television follows retired architect Mel Shivvers’ journey from long-time Blenko Glass collector to first-time Blenko Glass creator. Our cameras join Mel in his home studio where he designed the 2015 Blenko Glass “Iowa Piece”, and they follow him to the Blenko plant in West Virginia where he’ll witness the construction of his very first curved glass design.
