The Artistry of Frank Workman
 
Visitors at Fenton Art Glass watch in awe as glass artisan Frank Workman sits at his finisher’s bench and carefully applies a molten thread of glass to a vase. Within a few minutes, Frank has deftly fashioned the thread into an intricate zigzag pattern whose bright color contrasts perfectly with the hue of the vase. His audience applauds as Frank holds the vase aloft momentarily for all to see.
 
Since joining Fenton in 1996, Frank has mastered all the traditional skills of the glassmaker. In recent years, he has worked closely with master glass artisan Dave Fetty and taken on some of the most challenging jobs in our factory.
 

However, Frank most enjoys working “off hand,”

producing vases and similar objects witha basic mould and creating vivid decorative motifs ranging from hanging hearts and thin threadsto amazing swirls, twists and exaggerated geometric patterns.
