Charles Lotton, with his sons David and Daniel, his grandson Robert Lagestee, and their studio artist Scott Bayless, create hand blown, one of a kind works of fine glass art. They create beautiful hand blown vases, bowls, sculptures, paperweights, perfume bottles, lamps, pendant lighting as well as chandeliers. Their business began in 1970 with prayers and dreams when Charles began teaching himself the art of glassblowing in his backyard. The chemistry of Charles' glass is unique to Lotton Glass. Lotton Art Glass is one of the very few studios in the world to start with elements of the earth like sand, soda ash, lime, borax, zinc and metals resulting in some of the most breathtaking colors that you will ever see.
