Since joining Fenton in 1996,
Frank has held a variety of jobs. He began by carrying-in and soon moved up
to the position of handle gatherer. A hard worker and, according to his
co-workers, "a quick study". Frank's skilled jobs now include gathering,
blocking, finishing, and attaching handles to baskets.
Frank says one of the most
challenging pieces he's worked on is the base for the Willow Green
Opalescent epergne in our 2000 Centennial Collection. This item is also
among his favorites, because, as he says, "it's so unique...you had to crimp
the rim twice and then hold it on the air and let it fold over."
In his spare time, Frank, a
Belmont, W.Va. resident, enjoys drag racing.
