of "bling", a gemstone collar, to complete this piece.

Burton's birds and blooms design, which encircles the

Weekly eBay Auctions. . .
Here's your opportunity to own
a unique, rare, one-of-a-kind creation, through our
Shown below are our latest offerings: a one-of-a-kind
freeform bowl by glass artisan Frank Workman, two photos
of Fenton's iconic "Clarence" glassworker display and a
one-of-a-kind Owl figurine by Robin Spindler.
Items featured this week. . .
Fenton glass artisan Frank Workman made a
small number of one-of-a-kind offhand glass bowls/vases
while visiting the Mosser glass factory.
This fantastic freeform bowl is 10.5" across at its
widest points and stands 5.25" tall at its uppermost
points. Frank used cobalt blue glass, then rolled the
glass gather in red powder. Applied glass threading was
worked into the surface in a zig-zag pattern, and
threading was also applied to the body and the edge.
When the glass was expanded, this bowl was the dramatic
result! This piece is personally signed and dated on the
underside: "Frank Workman 3-28-15".
The now-iconic "Clarence" glassworker display was
developed by the John Falkner Arndt advertising agency
in Philadelphia especially for the Fenton Art Glass Co.
in the 1950s. The "Clarence" figure was made of papier
mache' and an 8" x 10" publicity photo was used to
introduce Clarence to Fenton customers in department
stores across the county. Just prior to the introduction
of Clarence, Fenton had a different glassworker display
in papier mache' that was modeled on a real Fenton
glassworker named Frank Meyers. An 8" x 10" photo shows
this display at the Marshall Field department store in
Chicago, Illinois, circa early 1950s.
Everything about this one-of-a-kind Owl
figurine (6" tall) by award-winning Fenton artist Robin
Spindler says "Whoo will have me in your home?" The
delicate airbrushed color of the Opal Satin glass body
contrasts with the details of the face, wingtips and
feet. The craggy purple rocks create a perfect perch!
The face and eyes are remarkably expressive. This
one-of-a-kind Owl figurine is signed on the underside:
"Fenton 2015 hand painted by J. K. Spindler OOAK".
