Fenton Art Glass Presents Studio Fenton and "Lava Flow"
(Williamstown, WV, April 18, 2008). The 2008 Studio
Fenton Collection from Fenton Art Glass showcases the skills and
talents of their glassworkers and artists. Included in this year’s
Collection is the magnificent “Lava Flow” vase. This vase will
surely start people talking when
displayed in your home!
Glass artisan Frank Workman continues to awe visitors at Fenton Art
Glass. For “Lava Flow,” he rolls a gather of lustrous black
glass in crushed orange glass called frit and then works the color
into the surface before covering it with pure crystal. The result is
a vivid mixture of light and dark orange tones set against the black
background ... all of which does indeed remind
one of the awesome flow associated with molten lava. Frank's skill
is evident as he completes the work by deftly shaping the topmost
area into graceful curves.
Item 8620 B5 “Lava Flow” 11-3/4" Vase,
limited to 450 pieces, retails $295 U.S.
