Fenton glass must meet exacting quality standards regarding its color and shape. When a piece falls just outside the standard (such as a crimp that is too shallow or too deep), it may be classed as a "second" by one of our trained selectors. As the late Frank M. Fenton liked to say, "These seconds are attractive pieces of our glass, and they can be purchased at very reasonable prices." For many years, the Fenton Gift Shop has had a special area where Preferred Seconds are sold. We're now taking that area online, offering you these Fenton Preferred Seconds at very reasonable prices!
Over 70 items are available Under the Big Top! Plus 20 items will be added each week until August 5.

Dave Fetty Internet Exclusives!
A skilled glassworker, Dave Fetty retired in 1999 after more than 40 years in the glass industry. Dave came to Fenton in 1964 after learning the trade in Milton, WV, at the Blenko Glass Company, where he began as a carrying-in boy when he was 19. Dave's mentor at Blenko was glassworker "Shorty" Finley, who taught Dave many of the skills needed to make glass off-hand (without moulds). Even after his "official" retirement, Dave has continued to contribute to Fenton. Never at a loss for ideas, Dave handcrafts limited editions of off-hand pieces based on his mood and inspiration.

Stacy likes "fun patterns" and loves to design landscapes and seascapes. Her brush deftly sweeps on broad strokes of paint but turns gentle when she creates the minute details. "Sometimes I look at a piece of glass and I just know what I want to paint," she says, "It just hits me." However, she admits she is sometimes challenged and she will scour art history books for inspiration. Stacy's work has been recognized with an award from the Society of Glass and Ceramic Decorators.
