Fenton USA Celebrates
the Skill and Tradition of the
American Glassworker

To continue our celebration of the Labor Day holiday,
we are saluting our skilled and talented craftsmen at Fenton Art Glass. In this newsletter, we honor the Glassblower. The vase shown at right is an example of
the glassblower's skill. Click on the vase for details.

 

Few occupations match the romance and beauty of the glassblower. Seemingly without effort, the glassblower shapes a gob of orange-red molten glass on the blowpipe before expanding it with a puff of his own breath.

 

At Fenton, most of our blown glassware is made with cast iron moulds. However, our skilled glassblowers must shape and manipulate the molten glass on their blowpipes before using the mould. These operations require both patience and skill, and such qualities come only after many years of experience. The blower must have the proper amount of glass for the piece to be made, and he must anticipate the final shape of the piece. This means distributing the molten glass on the blowpipe, and creating a long shape for a tall vase or a short, slightly rounded shape for a rose bowl.

In addition to creating
beautiful individual pieces
that have become collector favorites, glass artisan
Frank Workman is an accomplished glassblower.

Create Your Own "Cameo Carved" Halloween Display!

Included in the 2010 Studio Fenton collection, this smiling 5-1/2'' cameo carved Ghost figurine is limited to 350 pieces. The Scaredy Cats design is by cameo artists Kelsey Murphy and Robert Bomkamp. Front and back images are shown in the above photo. Exquisitely carved details include cats, pumpkins, spider webs and spooky trees. Cameo carving is a painstaking process. After the glass has been annealed, a special mask is taped to the surface of the glass. Each piece is carefully sandcarved, by hand, using aluminum oxide crystals under pressure to take away some of the surface. Great individual skill and experience are needed to control this operation, as stages of cameo carving are required to create the depth and intricate details.
