Fenton Art Glass Extends Tradition with Mosaic Piece in 2006 Connoisseur Collection

(Williamstown, WV). The 2006 Connoisseur Collection from Fenton Art Glass showcases the skills and talents of both glassworkers and artists. A new shape in this year's Collection continues the Mosaic art glass tradition first begun at Fenton eight decades ago.

Master glass artisan Dave Fetty's Mosaic vase has a contemporary look which is on trend for today's styles. Dramatic black glass is fused with crushed glass in vivid colors of red, orange, yellow, and green. The glassmakers' artistry is heightened with the addition of random threading over the surface of the vase before it receives a mist of satin luster. The Mosaic vase will make a statement wherever it is placed in one's home!

Item 5456 1N 8-1/2" Mosaic Vase, limited to 1250 pieces, retails for $295 U.S.
