Signatures and Numbered
This 6-1/4'' Cameo Flip Vase, called Elephants, is handcrafted in a specially formulated opaque gray glass and has been decorated with an airbrushed green tint around the top edge. You'll note the wonderful color striations found throughout this vase, swirls of gray color in various tones, similar to those found in other special opaque glass formulas perfected at Fenton such as Periwinkle Blue, Mandarin Red and Chocolate glass. No two vases will be exactly alike! Each vase is inscribed with the Fenton script F with USA underneath, the name of the piece, Elephants, and D/P Sample, along with the signatures of Chris Carpenter (Fenton Cameo artist), Kelsey Murhpy and Robert Bomkamp. Each vase is numbered #614 (design record number) and 1 of 8, 2 of 8, 3 of 8, etc. Originally $225, now $150 While Supplies Last!
The magnificently detailed sand carved scene depicts adult and baby Elephants circling around the vase as they follow their leader through a canopy of trees. The original design is by Cameo artists Kelsey Murhpy and Robert Bomkamp. We have just 8 remaining "designer proof" samples of this vase.
Cameo carving is a painstaking process. After the glass has been annealed, a special mask is taped to the surface of the glass. Using an advanced "vignetting" technique, each piece is carefully sand carved, by hand, using aluminum oxide crystals under pressure to take away some of the surface. Great individual skill and experience are needed to control this operation, as many distinct stages of successive cameo carving are required to create the remarkable depth and the intricate details.
