The bright colors of a hand-made quilt capture your eye. A look around reminds you that West Virginians have a way of celebrating everyday life with fine craftsmanship. Consider the Moon pot. It is different from the china pitchers and Fiestaware, yet they all begin with clay. Then, imagination takes over. West Virginia is well-known for hand-crafted glass. Some is etched, some hand painted, and some boldly colored. The most colorful of all – West Virginia marbles that are used around the world. Look for the baseball game. It is certainly different from the smooth bowl. and musical instruments.
