Fenton Art Glass
Dave Fetty Creations


Dave Fetty Originals!  
A skilled glassworker, Dave Fetty retired in 1999 after more than 40 years in the glass industry.
Dave came to Fenton Art Glass  in 1965 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.
Even after his "official" retirement, Dave continued to contribute to Fenton.
During 2000, he worked closely with the glassworkers who produced a "Hanging Hearts" vase for the Connoisseur Collection.
His contribution to the Collection in 2002 was his Favrene Feathers Vase.
Dave continued to work at Fenton Glass until it closed in 2011.

"Ada's Feathered Purse" by Dave Fetty
in Celeste Blue & Black
~ 2004 Connoisseur Collection ~

   Limited Edition of 1500  

Master Craftsman Dave Fetty's love for his wife Ada inspired the creation of this delicate tribute - a graceful, feminine purse to cherish forever.
The process begins with a core of Milk Glass covered with Celeste Blue glass.   Black glass threads are then worked into the surface & carefully pulled to form the feathered appearance.   Black glass edging is applied & worked by hand before a smooth handle of Celeste Blue glass is added to complete this extraordinary work of art.
Size:  6.5 inches high
Our purses are even more special -  each is hand-signed by Tom Fenton.
Bottom has the Dave Fetty stamp with his signature, and the handles also have the Fetty stamp.
Hand numbered on the bottom, along with Tom Fenton's hand signed signature.
