In 1973 a young Ron Hinkle started working at Louie Glass Company in Weston, WV. This job became a deep desire to grow his repertoire as a master glass artist. He spent 20 years with Louie Glass, learning techniques from other master glass artists, and honing his techniques and skill.
From this passion Hinkle’s Dying Art Glassworks was formed in 1993, and over the last 29 years has grown to become Ron Hinkle Glass, with a following of fans that span the globe and visit our location, or order online many times per year. Working with these loyal customers has been one of the greatest joys of Ron’s successful career. Seeing the joy his art has brought to so many people has made this journey complete.
Over the years Ron has worked side by side with many talented glass artists, and was also honored to work as the Vice President of Operations for 2 and a half years at Blenko Glass in Milton, WV. Now a total of 49 years later he has decided to retire early in the 2023 calendar year.
Ron will take orders until December 16th 2022, please allow up to 2 weeks for your orders to be shipped.
“What greater way could an individual spend his life than to spend it in a labor of love among family, and friends!” ~Ron Hinkle
