Dave Fetty and Frank Workman ~ Master Craftsman Events


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.
