Freeform Amberina Ashtray
Blenko has been producing beautiful glass in Milton West Virginia since 1893. Famous for its use of color and perfection in the art of blown glass Blenko hired young Alfred University graduate Winslow Anderson in 1947 to be its first resident designer. Anderson designed this free-form ashtray while at Blenko. A study in form and color the bright red-orange vessel is heavy weighing in at nearly three pounds and shallow. Polished on the top and textured on the back the tray opens itself to a variety of uses including candy bowl or change plate."
