Directly from Blenko Glass....information about the dalles at the Air Force Academy


Yes, Blenko made the Dalles- and we continue to provide bricks to the Academy gift shop to sell as samples of the glass in the roof. Noted that Mr. Meadows told me they needed so many dalles we could not make them fast enough so other glass companies sub-contracted with us to help fill the order in a timely manner- I do not know which other companies they were. And, indeed, Boyd departed some months back.


hope that helps a little?

Kokomo came to Blenko years ago to learn to make Dalles- we taught them, That may have been for the AF Academy or prior to that- no one here to ask now.


Anyone who can make thick cast glass COULD make a dalle- so Fenton, Davis-Lynch and others who melt batch
