Innovative and Contemporary Glass Designs by Fenton Artist

Dave Fetty

Monet's Garden

A bold new direction for Dave Fetty, our team of talented artisans has revived hot glass decorative methods from the distant past and developed and mastered new techniques all their own. Each of these dramatic vases will be embossed with the personal stamp of Dave Fetty. An innovative technique captures the French Impressionist in today's art glass. An inner layer of light green glass is covered with Milk Glass and rolled through different colors of finely crushed glass. When the vase is reheated, gold ruby glass develops into random pink ''flowers'' that are sure to delight. A perfect addition to the Studio Collection. Limit: 950.

In the Fenton Sample Room this Week

Mid-1960s Colonial Orange Covered Comport

Bid Now (eBay)

Inspired by some pieces we made for Rubel, Frank M. Fenton had the moulds for this covered comport (7" tall overall) created in the mid-1960s, and this sample piece is our Colonial Orange color from that time. We're now using these moulds for new items in our Artware grouping, but this Colonial Orange sample is a real rarity! The cover of this sample piece has some "settle waves," and there is a "lap mark" that is about 1-1/2" long. These are the sorts of things that occur in making samples, but we want you to be aware of them on this item.

1981 "Raven Carnival" Lincoln Inn Water Set

Bid Now (eBay)

Called "Raven Carnival" when we made it for Levay in 1981, this seven-piece Lincoln Inn pattern water set (pitcher 6-1/2" tall; tumblers 4-1/4" tall) is among the most-sought after items ever produced by Fenton for Levay. The iridescence is simply fantastic.

Mid-1970s Rosalene Hobnail Candleholder

Bid Now (eBay)

The luscious color of this sample Rosalene 3974 Hobnail candleholder (3-1/2" tall) is just too much for words! Made in the mid-1970s, this piece would be the perfect addition to any Rosalene collection.
