International Launches Blue Odyssey Glassware
(Williamstown, WV, June 10, 2008).
The Fenton International division of Fenton Art Glass has begun to
market a line of imported glassware. There will be four color groups
(Blue Odyssey, Gold Ruby, Golden Sand, and Golden Stripe) with items
ranging from bowls and pitchers to baskets and vases. These giftware
items will be available in stores around August 1. Each piece will
carry the distinctive Fenton International logo.
For the Blue Odyssey group, a layer of deep blue glass flows over a
rich purple core to create the background for individual works of
art. There are nine different vase shapes, each with a distinctive
hand cut pattern created by Fenton designer Stacy Williams. "These
designs have been developed with meticulous care to ensure they
bring great value to the end consumer," said Fenton Art Glass
Company President George Fenton. "We have more than a century of
design and color expertise, so we decided to use that expertise to
become the premier supplier of colored glass from around the world.
We worked closely with an experienced glass manufacturer in China to
create distinctive, attractive items for this new Blue Odyssey line.
Quality is a top priority, and this firm is one of the few that can
meet our specifications."
