Very attractive "Fenton" Mosiac Art Glass Vase by Dave Fetty.
This is about as colorful as it gets in mosiac art glass. This piece is getting lot's of comments in the shop so I don't suspect it will last long.
This is a heavy piece weighing 1 pound 14 ounces and measures 6 inches in height and 6 1/2 inches in diameter.
In excellent condition except fo two very slight blemishes on the ridge of one side and we have therefore lowered the price about $100.

A skilled glassworker, Dave Fetty retired in 1999 after more than 40 years in the glass industry. Dave came to Fenton in 1964 after learning the trade in Milton, WV, at the Blenko Glass Company, where he began as a carrying-in boy when he was 19. Dave's mentor at Blenko was glassworker "Shorty" Finley, who taught Dave many of the skills needed to make glass off-hand (without moulds).
In the mid-1970s, Dave worked with glass artisan Robert Barber, helping to design and create some of Fenton's first limited edition pieces. In 1998, Dave taught a "pulled feather" technique to other glassworkers, and he supervised them as they produced this vase for the 1998 Connoisseur Collection.
Even after his "official" retirement, Dave has continued to contribute to Fenton.
