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.
