West Virginia first lady unveils Blenko glass piece
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia first lady Cathy Justice has introduced a limited-edition glass pitcher available for purchase.
Justice’s office says the signature piece unveiled Wednesday is a collaborative effort between the first lady, Blenko Glass in Milton and the state Division of Culture and History.
Justice chose a crystal cracked pitcher featuring an etched gold image of West Virginia’s outline, surrounded by a laurel wreath. The pitcher was created by Huntington artist Jennifer Gonze.
There were 100 pitchers produced, and each has a number on it and is signed by Justice. The pitchers sell for $73 and are available for purchase in the state Culture Center in Charleston.
