Day 410-Crystal with Cobalt Frit
This experimental piece was produced in October of 2010 and is etched 2010 on the base. I was lucky enough to see the owner purchase it but not lucky enough to find that 2 of them had been made. I have been told that when Fenton closed it’s doors Blenko acquired a good amount of frit ( small pieces of glass that can be added to the outside of molten glass and incorporated into it ) from them and that is what inspired some of the frit items that have been produced in the last couple of years. I have expressed interest in frit water bottles but have been told that this water bottle was a mistake and never should have been made. I keep wishing and I keep asking. Maybe one day it will happen.
