Fenton USA Presents. . . Cameo Carved Art Glass

(Williamstown, WV, February 16, 2009).
Limited to just 500 pieces, the Fenton USA Cat-tales Frog, by renowned Cameo Artists Kelsey Murphy and Robert Bomkamp, is sure
to become an heirloom treasure. Kelsey and Robert specialize in glass cameo carving, an exacting art that demands both skill in design and great dexterity in execution. In recent months, they have teamed with Fenton USA to design and produce some remarkable limited edition pieces.

Cameo carving is a painstaking process. After the glass has been annealed, a special mask is taped to the surface of the glass. Each piece is carefully sandcarved, by hand, using aluminum oxide crystal under pressure to take away some of the surface. Great individual skill and experience are needed to control this operation, as many distinct stages of successive cameo carving are required to create these details.

Item 5274EK Cameo Carved Limited Edition "Cat-tales" 2-1/2" Frog retails for $99 U.S.

Now in its 103rd year of manufacturing, Fenton USA continues its longstanding traditions of craftsmanship and quality with new glass colors, handpainted decorations and limited editions.

Creating spectacular colored art glass for more than a century in their Williamstown, West Virginia location, Fenton Art Glass Company represents American handcrafted glass artistry. Fenton is known for its wide range of colors, handpainting and
handcrafting. For four generations, Fenton family members have remained active in the business and are proud to continue an American glassmaking tradition begun in 1905.
