The Fenton Centennial Celebration continues!

Rated in USA Today as one of the TOP 10 tours in America, there is simply nothing like the Fenton Factory Tour. Watch raw materials become molten glass which is shaped by artisans in the age-old tradition. Furnaces glow; sparks fly, and from heat, noise and motion emerge works of art that captivate and delight.

The crafting experience showcases the talent of skilled artisans painstakingly handpainting each piece, and ends in the Gift Shop where an artist handpaints glassware to customer specifications. The Fenton Museum highlights mid-Ohio valley glassware from 1880 to the present.

Enjoy special Centennial Events throughout 2005 designed to make your visit a truly “once in a lifetime experience” – decorate your own Fenton Christmas ornament, observe firsthand the talents of skilled craftsmen Dave Fetty and Jim Ralston as they create special Fenton Centennial pieces…visit for all the information you need to plan your Fenton Factory Experience.
