Did you know . . .
You may recall the story about the "ugly duckling".
Baby swans (called cygnets) have gray or brown feathers,
but they mature to become the most beautiful of all water
fowl. An adult swan has pure white feathers and a long,
graceful neck. Swans mate for life and each mate is
protective of the other. They touch beaks to kiss and
their necks form a heart. It is said that the Greek
philosopher Socrates thought swans sang beautiful songs
right before they died. This is why a last performance is
sometimes referred to as one's “swan song.”

Fenton Art Glass eBay Auctions. . .
Here's an opportunity to own a beautiful
"one-of-a-kind" art glass creation or unique art glass item
through our weekly eBay auctions. These auctions will end
at noon (ET) on Wednesday, January 31.
Items featured this week. . .
Created in 2011 at Glass Axis Studio in
Columbus, Ohio by internationally-recognized glass artist,
Doug Frates, this impressive 11.5” tall art piece was one of
several commissioned by Tom Fenton for his Artful Remembrance
project. Doug calls this style of coloring "Sedona," and it is
one of the silvered finishes for which he has become famous.
Frates is a United States Marine who served in Iraq in 2003.
This piece also has a black ring around the top and is
signed by Doug Frates. His signature is large, but it blends
in, so you need to look closely near the bottom of the
piece. The finished bottom of the vase reveals the
characteristic pontil mark typical of offhand glass artistry.
bottom surface also displays an inscribed alphanumeric Artful
Remembrance identification code.
This stately one-of-a-kind hand painted vase by award-winning
designer Robin Spindler stands 10.75" tall. This is a
cased glass piece (with Wild Rose exterior and milk glass
interior), and it has been satin finished. The rich rose color
is the perfect background for Robin's depiction of a white
Dove amidst lush flowers and foliage. As always, Robin's
meticulous hand painting creates wonderful details and
remarkably lifelike texture. This is our Feather vase, and the
mould was designed by Cathy See in the early 1990s. Typically,
to create overlay glass, a core of Milk Glass is
gathered and shaped by a skilled glassworker called a Blocker.
Then, a layer of colored glass is gathered over the Milk
Glass. Fenton's glass technologists assured that the two
layers of glass matched perfectly, expanding and contracting
at the same rate. Note the graceful six-point crimp style.
Here’s a unique opportunity to acquire a piece of Fenton
history! This 8” x 10” black-and-white print was made from an
original negative in the Fenton Art Glass Company archives. We
think that this photo dates from the late 1920s or
early 1930s. All of the men pictured are members of Local
Union No. 22 of the American Flint Glass Workers Union.
There are 29 Fenton employees pictured in the photo, and we
have identified 28 of them. Complete captions will be
supplied to the winning bidder for this photo. These
auctions will end at noon (ET) on Wednesday, January 31.
