Watching Dave make the offhand artisan pitcher is magical! He prepares a bubble of Aubergine glass, then strings several threads of French Opalescent color glass around the bubble. Dave deftly wields his sharp pick to pull the threads into the desired drapery pattern. Next comes an invigorating warm-up in the glory hole at 2300 degrees. Then he blows the bubble larger inside a vase-shaped mould. From a little blob of molten Aubergine, he gently draws a ring onto the top edge of the vase. He turns down one edge to make a pouring lip. And lastly, he carefully turns and attaches the molten Aubergine handle.
For Dave's part, he signals "finis" by firestamping his mark onto the bottom of the piece and placing it in the annealing oven to cool. Order your set at this great price, before they're all gone!
Designed by Robin Spindler for Fenton Art Glass, the violet "Batter Up" bell celebrates America's favorite pastime, and perhaps your dad's number-one sport as well. Measuring 6 1/2 inches tall, and priced at only $55, this summer bell is sure to hit a home run with the athletic-minded dad.
An array of fluid, sleek yet stylized floral botanicals adorns silky smooth shapes. Fenton designer Robin Spindler understands the drama of a perfectly presented flower, and she captures it forever in this striking new look, known as "Midnight Garden." Each piece is handpainted in painstaking detail and signed with pride by the artist who completes it. Outfox Dad with a surprise gift from Fenton!
Sturdy stainless steel is crafted into a roadworthy travel mug that bears a 100th anniversary Fenton logo. Perfect for everything from hot coffee to hot chocolate...don't let Dad leave home without it!
The beautiful blush of Burmese glass has always been a collector's favorite. This lovely angel with a handpainted pansy design has been produced as a gift shop exclusive and is proudly signed by the artist.
Entertain in style with this deep rich Aubergine leaf design cakeplate. This warm color was inspired by fashion and then quickly embraced by home decorators. Available only through the Fenton Gift Shop, this new exclusive for 2006 will be a pleasure to give or to own.
