Cherry Blossoms on Indigo Blue
Nothing signals the arrival of Spring more than the sweet scent of cherry blossoms. Designed by Kim Barley, this fresh handpainted pattern reflects the simplicity of Asian style.
Indigo Blue is a timely color with global appeal. This deep, natural blue can be seen worldwide in beautifully handmade fabrics. Translated into lustrous Fenton glass, Indigo Blue imparts a lively personality.

Cameo carving is a 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 crystal 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.
The minimum silent auction bid is $500

Several Fentons fell hard for
sculptor Suzi Whitaker's new figurine mould, so each of these adorable
youngsters bears the signature of a Fenton family member. As you can see,
each Fenton Foal sports its own color and a distinctive handpainted
decoration as well.

1992 Handpainted Dark Burmese Vase
Bid Now (eBay)
This dark Burmese vase with handpainted rose decoration stands 4-1/2" tall and has a great story to tell. Scheduled to be sold on QVC in 1992, vases like this were handpainted and put into our decorating lehr to be fired. The lehr got a bit too hot, so most of the vases got greatly distorted and had to be discarded. This one just slumped right straight down and its Burmese color got much, much darker. This vase was handpainted by "M. Wagner" and is inscribed with Bill Fenton's signature (see p. 42-O of the book Fenton Glass: Especially for QVC to see what this vase should have looked like!).
