This beautiful Fenton Art Glass Sand Carved Burmese "Butterflies" Vase is a very rare Limited Edition. Made by Fenton, this vase is sandcarved and i. T is signed by a. Rtists Robert Bomkamp and Kelsey Murphy. Kelsey and Robert specialize in glass cameo carving, an exacting art that demands both skill in design and great dexterity in execution.
They teamed with Fenton Art Glass to design and produce some remarkable limited edition pieces. Cameo carving is a painstaking process. After the glass has been annealed, a special mask is taped to the surface of the glass. Using an advanced "vignetting" technique, each piece is carefully sand carved, by hand, using aluminum oxide crystal under pressure to take away some of the surface.
This is a rare pre-production prototype and is hand numbered #53. Since it was pre-production, there was no edition limit etched into this piece.
Also engraved on the bottom of the vase is the Fenton engraved "F" as well as the word "BUTTERFLIES". Has original Fenton sticker on the rim of the vase. This outstanding vase measures approximately 8" tall by 6 1/2" in diameter. Excellent condition - no box.
