Fenton USA Presents. . .A Studio Fenton "Berry" Temple Jar

(Williamstown, WV, September 19, 2008). With a special colored glass for their canvas, Cameo Artists Kelsey Murphy and Robert Bomkamp have created a striking holiday Temple Jar in Ruby Amberina glass for those who love Fenton glass. Included as part of the Studio Fenton collection for Christmas 2008, the "Berry Temple" Jar is strictly limited to 350 individually numbered pieces. The Temple Jar features intricately carved holly leaves and berries winding around the vase.

Cameo carving is a painstaking process, requiring both artistic talent and considerable manual dexterity. Great skill and experience create the remarkable depth, delicate shading, and intricate details. A special mask is firmly taped to the surface of the annealed glass. Using advanced vignetting techniques, each individual piece is then meticulously sandcarved, sometimes with many layers. Each piece designed by Kelsey and Robert is truly unique.

Artists Kelsey Murphy and Robert Bomkamp call their southern West Virginia studio "Made in Heaven," and the name is an apt one, indeed. Collectors and museums alike, including the White House, have come to regard Kelsey's and Robert's works as
"heavenly."

Item 7707 Z7 6-1/4" Limited Edition Berry Temple Jar retails for $395 U.S.
Limited to 350 pieces.

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 hand-crafting. For four generations, Fenton family members have remained active in the
business and are proud to continue an American glassmaking tradition begun in 1905. Call 800-933-6766 for more information or visit www.fentonartglass.com
