Presents . . . Limited Quantity Online Lamp Special!
I7661CJ Cameo Carved Spiderweb Lamp, $650.00,
Nobody does lamps like Fenton Art
Each handcrafted Fenton lamp was created
in the fiery furnaces of our more than a century old factory in Williamstown, West
Virginia. Using traditional American glassmaking techniques and
tools, our talented craftsmen transform sand, soda
ash and lime
into beautiful works of art for generations to enjoy. Each Fenton
lamp reflects the history and craftsmanship
inherent in its creation.
Our Limited Quantity Online Lamp Special includes this beautiful 10''
Cameo Carved Burmese Lamp with a magnificent spider web design! We
don't think you'll find another lamp quite like this one!
Handcrafted in our classic Burmese glass, which has pure gold in
the formula to create the soft pink blush. The lamp design has a
spider in its web nestled among ferns. This lamp uses a
candle-shaped light bulb (narrow base). The photo at right shows
the lamp with the bulb turned on and the inset photo shows the
lamp without the bulb. As you can see, it is beautiful to display
Cameo carving is an exacting art
that demands both skill in design and great dexterity in
execution. After the glass has been annealed, a special mask is
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.
There are just four of these
remarkable lamps available.

Fenton's Focal and Vasa Murrhina Glass
Beads. . . Wearable Art!
One of our newest handcrafted glass
jewelry designs is the Precious Metals Focal bead. Precious Metals
add a new dimension to glass beads. They are used in two forms,
melted into the glass formulas or added
as pure metals to the bead during the forming process. Shown above
Elven Woods Focal bead paired with two of our
Desert Sunset Vasa Murrhina beads. Designed by Jena Lane
Blair, the Elven Woods Focal bead is impressive, not only in size
(at nearly 1'' in length) but in its beauty. Jena used silver
based Raku flakes to create a myriad of color within this bead.
Our shimmering Vasa Murrhina
beads, such as the Desert Sunset ones shown above, feature a
Fenton Art Glass treatment from the 1970s which uses gold
aventurine frit (finely ground glass). Jena designed
this unique bead which has glistening golden browns and rich
turquoise. Click on each bead shown above or

jewelry collection. Fenton handcrafted glass beads are
compatible with most major brands of bracelets and necklaces.
Bead accessories are not sold through www.fentonartglass.com

other online supplier.
One-of-a-kind Art Glass Creations
from the Fenton Gift Shop. . .
The Fenton Gift Shop still has
J.K. ''Robin'' Spindler creations available. We will be
featuring select pieces in upcoming newsletters.
We start with these two
magnificent vases, both showcasing Robin's artistic talents.
With Burmese glass as her
canvas, award-winning Fenton designer Robin Spindler created a
satin finish on the central area of this 8-3/4'' tall vase,
leaving the bottom area and the topmost area shiny. After
carefully sandcarving a geometric pattern in the bottom area,
she handpainted a remarkably lifelike portrait of a fluffy,
frisky Pomeranian! Everything about the portrait is splendid,
from the delicate tones and colors to those wonderfully
expressive eyes. It looks as if you can reach out and pet this
adorable pet! This vase is signed by Robin and lettered on the
bottom: "Fenton USA OOAK handpainted by J.K. Spindler

black at first glance, but it is actually a very dark Emerald
Green glass! Award-winning Fenton designer Robin Spindler used a

The subtle tones of Robin's skillful handpainting really bring out
the beauty and depth of the raised floral pattern and geometric
elements that were imparted by the mould during the glassblowing
process. This vase is signed and lettered on the underside:
"Fenton USA OOAK 2012 hand painted by J. K. Spindler".
