Week 3 of Dave Fetty's Internet Exclusives!
Over the next 3 weeks, we will be introducing 6 new Dave Fetty internet exclusives. They're only available at fentonartglass.com and will be offered in very limited quantities. Each piece will be embossed with Dave Fetty's personal stamp and individually signed by Dave himself. Check each week in the Fenton Newsletter for Dave Fetty's Internet Exclusives.
Dave Fetty Turquoise Feathers Egg
Master glass artisan Dave Fetty has created a spectacular Egg (4-1/2" tall). The turquoise color results when Milk Glass is cased with transparent blue glass. The pulled feather technique is awesome to see, and minute flecks of mica add greatly to the visual appeal of this piece. The Egg is embossed with Dave's personal stamp and is signed by Dave, too ("Dave Fetty '07"). Only 21 available!
Dave Fetty Turquoise Feathers Vase
Master glass artisan Dave Fetty has created a spectacular Vase (7-3/4" tall). The turquoise color results when Milk Glass is cased with transparent blue glass. The pulled feather technique is awesome to see, and minute flecks of mica add greatly to the visual appeal of this piece. The Vase is embossed with Dave's personal stamp and is signed by Dave, too ("Dave Fetty '07"). Only 25 available!
Hawaii stirs in Robin Spindler's heart so Dobie is her boy, Frances Burton is as gentle and elegant as Francine's floral, Stacy Williams is whimsical and sweet like Duffy, and Stylin' Stella walks the walk and talks the talk in Kim Barley's snappy shoes!
Janet Noble Joins Fenton's Internet Department
Janet Noble comes to Fenton through a summer internship program at Washington State Community College. Janet will be working with Connie Mayle, the Fenton webmaster until September.
A Computer Graphics major, Janet is no stranger to the field of graphic design. Having already received an Associate Degree in Graphic Design from Cincinnati Academy of Design, Janet has worked in various positions part-time and freelance while raising her family.
"I am pleased to have someone with her extensive background in graphic design joining our internet team," says Mayle.
After her youngest child got married, Janet decided to go back to school, brush up on her skills, and learn some new ones. She is very proud that after all these years, her brain still works. Her honors include Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society for two year colleges and a 3.9 GPA. Janet has five classes yet to take to receive her Associate Degree in Computer Graphics.
She and her husband reside at Cutler, Ohio. They have three married children, one grandchild with another due in February.

QVC Alert: Fenton show to be held on Thursday, July 12th from 4am to 5am EST
Frances Burton loved sketching and painting with watercolors long before she began working as a Fenton decorator in 1973. She enjoys her job as a designer because it gives her the freedom to create. Much of her inspiration comes from her garden. "I love to grow flowers, and I get many ideas from them," she says. "It lets me see what they look like in nature and how they change as they grow."
