Ron Hinkle Glass ~ Buckhannon, WV

Ron Hinkle

Going to see Ron Hin­kle’s glass shop is one of Mom’s favorite things to do when vis­it­ing, Buck­han­non. She has made a vis­it to see Ron’s work every year I’ve been dri­ving them to West Vir­ginia. She’s also left with a bag full of gor­geous glass to bring home too. If you are lucky, when you vis­it, Ron might be in town cre­at­ing some of his amaz­ing glass pieces. If he is out on the road sell­ing his glass items his assis­tant Richard is just as nice and loves show­ing how he cre­ates glass items of all kinds and answer­ing any and all ques­tions about hand blow­ing glass. Hei­di takes care of the gift shop and is the sweet­est. Ron Hin­kle Glass is a won­der­ful place to vis­it filled with won­der­ful peo­ple.

This vis­it, I stayed at my aunts vis­it­ing my cousins while mom, dad and two of my cousins went for a vis­it. They got to enjoy watch­ing Ron cre­ate a beau­ti­ful glass bell and vase. It amazes me how Ron and Richard start out with a lump of very hot glass and turn it into a mas­ter­piece.

If you want to vis­it Ron’s place tucked away in the hills of Buck­han­non you can find direc­tions HERE on his web­site. It’s a beau­ti­ful scenic dri­ve of wind­ing roads to his shop. We’ve seen deer and wild turkeys sev­er­al times dur­ing out vis­it and if you stop in Tama­rack you will find some of his glass items there too.

I love West Vir­ginia!
