Dave Fetty and Frank Workman ~ Master Craftsman
The phrase "off hand" really means
working "by hand," as the master craftsmen create various
effects by shaping molten glass
and applying threads or bits of glass in contrasting colors.
Dave Fetty, who designed some of
Fentonís first limited edition pieces, retired in 1999 after more
than 40 years in the glass industry. Even after his "official"
retirement, he has continued to contribute to Fenton. In addition
to working closely with the glassworkers who produced a "Hanging
Hearts" vase for the Connoisseur Collection, his contribution to
the Collection in 2002 was the "Favrene Feathers Vase." Dave also
contributes pieces for the Collectors Room at the Fenton
Collectors Convention held in August of each year. Never at a loss
for ideas, Dave handcrafts limited editions of off-hand pieces
based on his mood and inspiration.
Frank Workman may use a mould to bring the
piece to its final shape, but all the decorative effects − colored frits,
swirling feathers, swung bowls and vases, handles, ringing, threading, etc. are done
strictly by hand.
This talented young man has a distinctive
style with color and design that exceeds his 31 years of age.
Don't miss this opportunity to experience
the artistry of master craftsmen during our Artistry Weekend.
