Fenton Launches New
WV). Fenton Art Glass will extend its product offerings with new
lines of traditional and contemporary designs in glass and
non-glass. The new Fenton "Artware" division will include products
from around the world as well as handmade, colored art glass made in
the USA by Fenton.
Fenton Artware will be introduced at giftware shows in early 2007,
said. "We are very optimistic about this new family of products,"
Fenton said. "As a company known for innovation for more than 100
years, our new Artware division is another example of our
responding to a very competitive market."
According to Director of Design
"Fenton Artware will coordinate with Fenton glass products by style
and color to create attractive displays." Initial offerings in the
Fenton Artware line will be introduced at the January shows with
additional designs available later in 2007.
Founded in 1905, the Fenton organization includes two other
divisions. The Fenton Art Glass division includes traditional and
contemporary handmade colored art glass designed and produced in
Williamstown, W. Va. "This is and will remain Fenton's core
business," George Fenton said. "The Fenton Studio division
consists of artistic glass products produced in the USA in
association with outside and in-house designers in the glassmaking,
decorating, and sandcarving crafts."
