Charles Lotton Art Glass Vase,
rich irridescent blue on volcanic style body, signed & dated 1987, 5", excellent...In 1973, Charles G. Lotton made a decision that was to impact not only his immediate future, but would also serve to shape the futures of his children. A successful business career in cosmetology was surrendered out of a fascination with art glass and a passion to pursue creative expression. In addition to the private collections of many serious collectors of art glass, the artistry of Charles Lotton can be found gracing the shelves of the Smithsonian Institue, the Corning Museum of Glass, the High Museum and the Art Institute of Chicago. It has been said that just as the names Tiffany and Steuben ushered in the art glass movement of the 20th century, Lotton Art Glass will surely lead the way into the 21st.
