David Lotton

David is a second-generation artisan introduced to the art of glass making at the age of 10 by his famous father Charles Lotton. Impassioned, in 1978, David constructed a furnace of his own design and has since devoted his life to his craft. David is unique in that he has created and developed his own formulas for each color.

From the fiery furnaces in his studio in northeastern Illinois, working against the combined challenges of heat, gravity and time. David’s exquisite creations take shape through gentle coaxing and forceful manipulation of molten glass in the ancient traditional art of glass blowing. Many of the colors used are David’s own creations.
