The Dancing Ladies
A few years ago, sculptor
Suzi Whitaker worked from
Frank L. Fenton's original sketches so that we could make a new
Dancing Ladies vase mould. Our skilled glassworkers recently
produced the Dancing Ladies vase in vivid cobalt blue glass with a
wonderful Milk Glass edge and in sultry Key Lime glass with a
wonderful cobalt blue edge.

Fenton Experience. . .Glassmaking School 2009
The Fenton Art Glass Gift Shop
recently hosted Glassmaking Schools and Beadmaking Workshops for
those interested in having a unique opportunity to create their
own works of art. Shown above are a few images from the
glassmaking school. Our skilled glassworkers make creating glass
look so easy - but the students discovered it could be a challenging experience! Our
thanks to Dave Fetty, Frank Workman,
and their teams for their "guiding hands" during the school,
and to Jena Blair and Charla Nutter for coordinating the events.
The photo above shows Tina Rebert, a first-time glassmaking
student, using an ice pick for a hanging hearts design on her
vase. The second image shows Frank Workman assisting her while she
applies his signature stamp to her vase before it is placed in the
lehr. If you are interested in participating in our next
Glassmaking School, please contact
Jena Blair at firstname.lastname@example.org
We bid a fond farewell to attendees
at the National Fenton Glass Society and Fenton Art Glass
of America conventions held
in our area last
A good time was had by all!
While club members attended the
convention meetings and events,
some of their children had a true Fenton "experience" at the
factory under the supervision of Fenton employee Pam Dick. Below
are some "future artists" painting figurines in
our decorating department. Fenton designers Kim Barley and Michelle Kibbe
assisted with the decorating lesson and each child took home
their work of art!
