Fantasy by Frank Workman
Fenton Art Glass watch in awe
as glass artisan Frank Workman sits at his finisher’s bench and carefully
applies a molten thread of glass to a vase. Within a few minutes, Frank has
deftly fashioned the thread into an intricate zigzag pattern whose bright
color contrasts perfectly with the hue of the vase.
His audience applauds as Frank holds the
vase aloft momentarily for all to see.
joining Fenton in 1996, Frank
has mastered all the traditional skills
glassmaker. In recent years, he has worked closely with master glass artisan Dave Fetty and taken on some of the most challenging jobs in our factory.
However, Frank most enjoys working “off hand,” producing vases and similar
objects with a basic mould and creating vivid decorative motifs ranging from
hanging hearts and thin threads
to amazing swirls, twists and exaggerated geometric patterns.
Frank combines opaque blue glass and black glass
with crushed brown frit in this dramatic free-form "Ocean Fantasy" bowl
which will vary slightly in its 11" size. Ocean Fantasy (8191 1Q) is limited
to 500 pieces.
