will speak at the 2013 Glass Collectors Convention. Mr. Husted will be sharing the podium with Bo Sullivan of Arcalus Period Design at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 18. Bo was the historian for Rejuvenation in Portland, and Rejuvenation now carries a line of Blenko glassware, so there is the connection.
Mr. Husted designed for Blenko from 1952 to 1963, and then again in 1999. When you think of mid-century modern glassware, Blenko—and Wayne Husted’s designs—immediately come to mind. Blenko is the last great American glass factory still in business today.
