Opal Bowl with Purple Iris | 6.75" H x 11.5" W | Hand Blown Art Glass | C-85

One of the joys in life for Charles Lotton is the diversity in color and design that is the nature of art glass itself. This bowl was once a simple gathering of glass on a rod that was worked into the miracle that you see now. The intricacy of design and the dexterity Lotton possesses brings a bowl that will offer pleasure and sophistication into any space.

Charles Lotton is entirely self-taught. Years of trial and error have brought him the success he enjoys today and the collectors a rare opportunity to own art that will continue to reward, in the future, those who have the insight to purchase his art today.

Charles Lotton has been declared the Tiffany of tomorrow, the "heir apparent" to a legacy started during the turn of the century.
November 17, 1970, Lotton lit his furnace for the first time. Charles says "I felt a warm glow, not only physically but emotionally as well. Somehow the furnace did not seem like a stranger to me but more like an old friend. As I took in the sights and sounds of my new working glass studio, I thought, this is normal for me, this is where I belong." In only six months, Charles began to retail his glass and in 1972 he began a business relationship with the renown art glass antique dealer, Lillian Nassau, in New York. Today 
Lotton glass is documented in museums such as the Smithsonian, the Metropolitan, the Corning Museum, the High Museum, the Toledo Museum, and The Art Institute of Chicago.
