8-1/4'' Fenton Gift Shop Buttercup Overlay Vase
Overlay colors have
been produced by Fenton for more than half a century. Typically, a
core of Milk Glass is gathered and shaped by a skilled glassworker
called a Blocker. Then, a layer of colored glass, in this case
Buttercup, is gathered over the Milk Glass. Our glass
technologists assure that the two layers of glass will match
perfectly, expanding and contracting at the same rate. This
Buttercup Overlay Vase is numbered and limited to 11
pieces. Only a few remain!

Shown at right is our magnificent
Winter Birds cameo carved vase in Cobalt and Opal Satin,
designed by cameo artists Kelsey Murphy and Robert Bomkamp. Each
vase features their signatures and the name of the piece. Fewer
than 20 of these remain in the factory.
Artists Kelsey Murphy and Robert
Bomkamp call their southern West Virginia studio Made in Heaven,
and the name is an apt one, indeed. Collectors and museums alike
regard Kelsey's and Robert's work as heavenly! Kelsey and
Robert specialize in glass cameo carving, an exacting art that
demands both skill in design and great dexterity in execution.
They teamed with Fenton Art Glass to design and produce some
remarkable limited edition pieces, including this beautiful
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 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 many distinct stages of successive cameo carving are required
to create the remarkable depth and the intricate details.
