7'' Sea Mist Green Bear
Figurine on a Fount
Originally $90.00, Now $50.00
Buy Now!


Fenton animal figurines are made by a special process called "pressing through a fount." After the glass has been annealed and cooled to room temperature, the fount is cut off with a diamond saw and recycled, and the animal figurine is ground and polished. Many collectors enjoy having animal figurines on the fount, so we try to obtain
a few perfect examples.
An example like this one. . . perfect from top to bottom
. . . is a real treasure!

6'' Lavender Haze Vase in
Lavender Opaque and Black Vase
by Dave Fetty
$395.00 - Limited to 250


02545B6
11-3/4'' Water's Edge Vase
in Robin's Egg Blue Opalescent
 by Frank Workman
$375.00 - Limited to 250

Two of our Fenton
glass artisans,
Dave Fetty and Frank Workman, continue to awe Fenton factory visitors with their skill and talent. Their beautiful creations are included in our most recent Studio Art Glass collection.

 

The magnificent 6''
Studio Art Glass Vase by master glass artisan Dave Fetty is called Lavender Haze. Dave revisited one of his favorite off-hand decorative techniques, Pulled Feather, which
he learned when working with Robert Barber in the mid-1970s. Milk Glass and our new opaque Lavender provide the perfect background for the hand-applied threading that is transformed into "feathers" with special tools in Dave's skilled hands. This technique requires both sharp eyes and steady hands to create the desired effect. This vase is limited to 250 pieces and has Dave's personal stamp on the bottom. To learn more about Dave Fetty, click here.

 

The majestic 11-3/4'' Studio Art Glass Vase, called Water's Edge, was created by
Frank Workman. Looking at this vase, you can almost feel the gently moving waves
as you run your hand through the water. Starting with Robin's Egg Blue glass, Frank developed special techniques to create the final look. After applying rope-like threading, made of Milk Glass that has been rolled in golden brown frit, Frank uses a rib optic mould. After reheating the body of the vase, Frank deftly rotates the glass with stops and starts and reverse motion to achieve the remarkable twisting pattern and color distribution you see here. He makes it look easy when we watch him work, but this technique is very difficult, indeed, and few glassmakers in the world can match Frank's skill in this regard. This Vase is limited to 250 pieces with Frank's personal stamp on the bottom. To learn more about Frank Workman, click here.
