FENTON GIFT SHOP
3-1/2'' Lavender Satin Bear
Produced as a Fenton Gift Shop Exclusive, this Bear figurine
features the Fluttering Florals on Lavender design by
Michelle Kibbe. You can see why
we called these pieces Fluttering Florals. . .because the
flower petals resemble delicate butterfly wings!
3-1/2'' Frank Workman
Glass artisan Frank
Workman used multi-colored frit to make these fabulous blown Bears
with the mould for our popular Birthstone Bear. No two of these
great Bears will be exactly alike, but each is a unique beauty!
Frank's personal stamp is embossed on the underside, and only a
few of these remain available, so don't miss out.
4-1/2'' Dave Fetty
Lotus Mist Burmese Egg
Originally $75.00, Now $52.50
This shiny Lotus Mist
Burmese Egg (4.5" tall) was created by master glass artisan Dave
Fetty. It's embossed with Dave's personal stamp, and personally
signed by Dave, too ("Dave Fetty 2004").
7'' Sea Mist Green Bear
Figurine on a Fount
Originally $90.00, Now $50.00
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!

Water's Edge Vase
in Robin's Egg Blue Opalescent
by Frank Workman
$375.00 - Limited to 250
Two of our Fenton
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
The magnificent 6''
Studio Art Glass
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
The majestic 11-3/4'' Studio Art
Glass Vase, called Water's Edge, was created by
Workman. Looking at this vase, you can almost feel the gently
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
