Fenton Art Glass Company...Handcrafted in America for 100 years, reminds...

FREE Fenton Factory Tours are Fabulous!

2005 is the 100th anniversary of Fenton Art Glass – make 2005 YOUR YEAR to visit Fenton!

Rated in USA Today as one of the TOP 10 tours in America, there is nothing like the Fenton Factory Tour. Watch raw materials become molten glass which is shaped by artisans in the age-old tradition. Furnaces glow; sparks fly, and from heat, noise and motion emerge works of art that captivate and delight.

Free factory tours (Monday - Friday 8:15 am to 4:00 pm) take small groups of guests right out to the factory floor to see glassmaking "up close and personal." Friendly, knowledgeable tour guides explain all aspects of the operation. The Fenton tour has been named Rand McNally Best of the Road.

The crafting experience showcases the talent of skilled artisans painstakingly handpainting each piece, and ends in the Gift Shop where an artist handpaints glassware to customer specifications. The Fenton Museum highlights glassware from 1880 to the present.

But there is so much more – special Centennial Events designed to make your visit a truly “once in a lifetime experience” – decorate your own Fenton Christmas ornament, observe firsthand the talents of skilled craftsmen, including Dave Fetty, as they create special Fenton Centennial pieces…visit www.fentonartglass.com for all the information you need to plan your Fenton Factory Experience.

If you're planning a visit to Fenton Art Glass during October, here are two "glassy" added attractions you should know about!

The Campus Martius Museum in Marietta, Ohio, is hosting "Glass in Art and History: Commemorative and Novelty Items from the United Kingdom." This exhibit consists of more than 200 pressed glass items dating from 1837 to 1937. Many of these colorful objects commemorate events in the life of Queen Victoria, such as her marriage to Prince Albert, her Golden Jubilee (1887), and her Diamond Jubilee (1897). Many interesting novelty items, ranging from "posy holders" to presents for children, are also displayed. Campus Martius is open Wed-Sat (9:30 am to 5 pm) and Sundays and holidays (Noon to 5 pm). Admission is $7 ($6 seniors). Campus Martius is located at the corner of Second and Washington Streets in Marietta. For more information, www.ohiohistory.org/places/campus.

The Castle has about 150 pieces of glassware made by Marietta's Royal Glass Co. between 1898 and 1903. These items, which include rare pieces of Chocolate glass, are displayed throughout a Victorian home. Jacob Rosenthal was the Royal's manager in 1899-1900. The Castle is open on Monday, Thursday and Friday from 10 am to 4 pm and on Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 4 pm. Admission is $5 ($4.50 seniors). The Castle is located at 418 Fourth Street in Marietta. For more information, http://www.mariettacastle.org/exhibits/royalglass.php.
