The Snowy Owl is a "must-see" for bird watchers and wildlife enthusiasts. This magnificent bird, with an average wingspan of up to five feet, is breathtaking to behold. We believe Michelle Kibbe's hand painted rendition on our nearly 9" Opal Satin Vase is also breathtaking! The details are meticulously executed and a tribute to Michelle's talent for capturing the beauty of this magnificent bird. One view of this vase features a large Snowy Owl resting on a fencepost, while the other view has another Snowy Owl in flight. Michelle created a winter landscape as the background on this vase, complete with falling snow and blue and white skies. Note those golden eyes that seem to see right through you! Did you know. . .  Snowy Owls have special feathers on their legs and talons that remind one of fluffy, white slippers. These feathers provide ample insulation for the cold Arctic climate of their native habitat. Male Snowy Owls are almost completely white and females are white with dark bars on otherwise white plumage. Each Snowy Owls Vase is $165.

Collectors have enjoyed the charm of Fenton fairy lights for more than half a century. The flickering flame from a small candle inside a Fenton Fairy Light always seems to warm an entire room.

 

Michelle Kibbe's design on our 5" Opal Satin Fairy Light will make the perfect gift for Valentine's Day or as a "just because" gift for someone special! A pair of "Love Birds" Owls perch on a branch with flowering hearts and large pink flowers. The top of the shade as well as the base are painted in a rosy red color to complement Michelle's design. Additional views are shown below, including the far right image of this Fairy Light with the tea light's radiating glow. Each Love Birds Fairy Light is $95 and includes a battery-operated tea light.

Kim Barley's colorful and unique hand painted feather design looks very attractive on our 4.25" Fox Figurine, handcrafted in one of our latest glass colors, Caramel. The glass color shows through the vivid blue, aqua, gold and white tones of Kim's design.

 

Kim's creative use of a variety of patterns on the feathers and the head decoration are amazing! Note those wide open golden-black eyes! The photo below shows additional views of the neat figurine. Each Fancy Feathers Fox Figurine is $80.

Pre-orders for the Snowy Owls Vase, the Love Birds Fairy Light and the Fancy Feathers Fox Figurine will be accepted until midnight on Monday, January 20, 2020. To pre-order, please call Fenton Gift Shop at 1-800-319-7793, ext. 342 or email to: purchasing@fentongiftshop.com and include the names of the items you want to purchase in the subject line.

American glass manufacturers have produced eggs since the early 1900s. The Fenton Art Glass "5140" Egg on Stand was produced in many colors and patterns during the 1970s and 80s. Fenton Art Glass began their Collectible Eggs series in 1991.

 

Fenton Gift Shop is pleased to bring back the Egg on Stand in Opal Satin with a beautiful hand painted design by Michelle Kibbe. Large, lush purple roses with greenery and white and blue floral accents encircle the egg with another small cluster of flowers on the base. A ruby-throated hummingbird hovers near one of the roses to sip its sweet nectar. Each Purple Rose Hummingbird Egg on Stand is $75.

We're sure this jolly Ghost figurine will become a decorating favorite!

 

The light and dark swirls of color in this Caramel 5.75" Ghost figurine provide a great glass canvas for Michelle Kibbe's whimsical "Witchy Owl" design. Note the long eyelashes and heart-shaped nose on the Ghost's face!  An adorable brown owl perches atop rickety old fenceposts, next to two pumpkins with big smiles. Perhaps this owl is getting ready to transform itself into a witch! Michelle added moon, star and white dot accents.

Each Witchy Owl Ghost Figurine is $115.


There's a new Sheriff in town. . . and he's a jolly, carrot-nosed Snowman! Kim Barley created this delightful western-themed design on our 7" Opal Satin two-part Snowman Fairy Light. The base of this fairy light includes a wagon wheel and hitching post. The Snowman Sheriff's faithful equine companion appears to be taking a snack break. The top half of this fairy light has been airbrushed with a wintry blue sky background. Kim added tall green pines and falling snow. Note the wonderful details on the face and top hat. A lucky horseshoe and a Sheriff's badge are tucked inside the hat band. The bottom photos show the different views. The Fenton Art Glass Snowman fairy light was designed by Fenton sculptor Jon Saffell. Along with our Snowman and Snowlady figurines, they were in a grouping called Frosty Friends for several years. This Snowman Fairy Light is sure to become a favorite for seasonal decorating! Each Snowman Sheriff Fairy Light is $120 and includes a battery-operated tea light.

 

Pre-orders for the Purple Rose Hummingbird Egg on Stand, Witchy Owl Ghost Figurine and the Snowman Sheriff Fairy Light will be accepted until midnight on Wednesday, January 22, 2020.

Fenton Art Glass eBay Auctions. . .

Here's a wonderfully interesting one-of-a-kind hand painted Alley Cat (11" tall) from Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe. The Alley Cat is Jadeite glass, and Michelle's creative design features a fierce colorful Chinese dragon wrapped around the body of the Alley Cat. The green Dragon is beautifully detailed, the purple hues of its eyes are reflected in those of the Alley Cat itself and other design elements used by Michelle. The Alley Cat is an all-time favorite among Fenton Art Glass collectors since its introduction in 1970. The mould originated at the U. S. Glass Co. in Tiffin, Ohio, during the 1920s.

 

Here's a splendid one-of-a-kind hand painted Flip vase (6" tall) from Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe. This black glass vase was iridized with a spray of metallic salts to produce the vivid marigold iridescence that you can see in the wide bands at the top and bottom of the vase. The wide horizontal area of the vase has been satin-finished to create the perfect canvas for Michelle's delicate airbrushing and hand painted depictions of three adorable cats ... from a playful brown cat playing with a ball of purple yarn to a tortoise shell cat and its tuxedo cat friend. Michelle's hand painting, as always, is meticulous in its attention to detail, and every aspect and angle of this hand painted vase are pleasant sights to behold. The vase has an attractive diamond optic pattern inside.

 

Talented Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe has a flair for the unusual, and this one-of-a-kind hand painted satin-finished Ruby glass Ghost figurine (6" tall) certainly qualifies in that regard! From the hand painted green-eyed black cat to the purple-eyed Ghost itself, this figurine will start conversations, whether near Halloween or any time of the year! Note all the interesting hand painted details ... from the colorful hatband and yellow dots on the hat worn by the cat to the black spider in its web and all those fish bones tossed casually over the Ghost's shoulder. These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. ET on Wednesday, January 22, 2020.
