FENTON ART GLASS
Several employees will be "pulling rods" this week, and this is
the method we use to create the glass rods for our
beadmakers. Our made in America handcrafted glass
beads are both innovative
and unique, as they range
from interesting glass colors and treatments to remarkably
detailed handpainted motifs.
Each Fenton bead has a
sterling silver core inscribed with Fenton USA. Many Fenton
dealers around the country and the Fenton Gift Shop here in
Williamstown already have our beads in stock.
New bead assortments in a wide variety of colors will be offered
soon. Shown at left is our Aquamarine bead (0B714A), which will be
offered later this summer. To view our current selection of made
in America glass beads,
We're looking forward to
seeing many Fenton collectors
here soon. The National Fenton Glass Society convention
is July 30 through August 1, and the Fenton Art Glass
Collectors of America convention is August 2 through August 4.
Thanks again for your support,
George W. Fenton, President

Our Persimmon glass provides
perfect canvas for this Fish Bowl design by Kelsey Murphy
and Robert Bomkamp. This 3-1/2'' tall by 4-1/2'' diameter
Rose Bowl is handcrafted
in Persimmon glass, a new color in 2010. Originally
limited to 95 pieces, only 18 now remain in
our online inventory.

ware number to order.
Cameo carving is a painstaking process. After the glass has
been annealed, a special mask is taped
to the surface of the glass. Using
an advanced "vignetting" technique, each piece is carefully
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 many distinct stages of successive cameo
carving are required to create the remarkable depth and the
