Kelsey Murphy and her partner, Robert Bomkamp were cameo artists at Pilgrim Glass. After Pilgrim closed, they formed their own glass studio, called Studios of Heaven, aptly named, indeed! More than one excited collector has decribed these unique Art Glass creations as "simply breathtaking"!
In 2007 they were hired to be designers for Fentons new Studio Glass line. Cameo carving is a painstaking process, requiring both great artistic talent and considerable manual dexterity. After the glass has been annealed, a special mask is firmly taped to the surface. Then, using advanced "vignetting" techniques, each individual piece must be meticulously sandcarved.
Great skill and experience are needed to control this process, since many distinct stages of successive cameo carving may be required to create the incredible depth, delicate shading, and intricate details. Each piece designed by Kelsey and Robert is truly unique. Kelsey & Robert have created some spectacular cameo pieces out of Fenton glass. Each time you look upon THIS vase, youll discover dramatic details and subtle shading. Youll marvel at the perspective and depth inherent in cameo carved art glass.Here's your chance to add a magnificent "Cameo Vase" to your Fenton collection.
