"Outdoor recreation is a pervasive force in America, enjoyed by nearly every one of us and providing mental, physical, economic and social benefits. June is an especially active time for recreation in America, with millions of us commencing summertime activities and hundreds of annual events and meetings ranging from National Trails Day to National Boating and Fishing Week, National Family Recreation Week to National Clean Beaches Week. Recognition of the value of recreation and the importance of June as a time of recreation activity prompted Presidential designation of June as Great Outdoors Month for the first time in 2004." source: greatoutdoorsmonth.org
The Fenton family has always loved the outdoors. Pictured left is Frank M. Fenton in 1966 during a Fenton family vacation at a dude ranch in Colorado.
Several Fentons fell hard for sculptor Suzi Whitaker's new figurine horse mould, so each of these adorable youngsters bear the signature of a Fenton family member. The Fenton Foal in Autumn Gold bears the signature of Nancy Fenton.

Penguins On Ebony Favrene Sandcarved Temple Jar
Connoisseur Collection ''Penguins'' on Ebony Favrene Temple Jar, designed by Kim Barley. One of our newest glass color treatments comes alive with whimsical Penguins created by meticulous sandcarving of the glass. The artist's design must be adapted to the curved surface of the glass, and the processes of masking and sandcarving are both time-consuming and expensive. Limit:1500
Red Carnival Tulip Bowl
Carnival Glass 2007 - To celebrate the centennial of Carnival glass, we have rediscovered and improved much of the original chemistry and techniques for iridizing glass. We salute the past and mark our place in the present with a panoply of Carnival glass colors in a wide variety of shapes contemporary. These pieces are surely the heirlooms of the future. This ''Butterfly & Tulip'' bowl is a nice addition to this collection. (stand not included)
Autumn Night on Black Satin, designed by Robin Spindler. The crispness of Autumn and the depth of night...captured forever in an entirely new decorative technique...airbrushed colors are masked and sandcarved to reveal the background. A perfect addition to the Horizons Collection.
Four Seasons Mary Gregory Pitchers - Our quartet of talented decorating designers has done it again! Pitchers for all seasons! Four outstanding examples of a contemporary collector's classic Gregory-style handpainting on vivid Fenton glass colors. The mould for this pitcher originated at the Fostoria Glass Co. in Moundsville, West Virginia, about 70 years ago, and this is the first time we have used it since it was recently acquired from the Indiana Glass Co. ''Fore'' Summer Pitcher on Aubergine, designed by Robin Spindler.
