All the grandeur of a summer sunrise on West Virginia's scenic Gauley is captured forever in Fenton's historic Burmese glass.
Limited to just 375 individually numbered pieces, this sandcarved Fenton Art Glass vase designed by Kelsey Murphy is made with a unique glass formula called Burmese, which was first developed in the 1880s. The formula contains pure gold, and the glass must be chilled and reheated during the manufacturing process to create the delicate pink blush.
Educated at the Rhode Island School of Design, Kelsey Murphy is internationally renowned for her cameo glass creations. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of the Corning Museum of Glass and the New Orleans Museum of Art as well as in our nation's White House.
The Gauley River Sunrise vase is the result of a painstaking process. After the glass has been annealed, a special mask is taped to the surface of the vase. Using Kelsey Murphy's advanced "vignetting" technique, each vase 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 a dozen distinct stages of successive cameo carving are required to create the remarkable depth and the intricate details youΉll see in this vase.
The Gauley River Sunrise vase is an outstanding addition to the Fenton Studio collection. The management and employees of Fenton Art Glass look forward to working with Kelsey Murphy and her colleague, Robert Bomkamp, on future projects.
