https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gfk2VMSru0UDaniel Lotton, born in 1963, began working in his father’s glass studio at the age of 15. His first responsibility was grinding paperweights while learning the art of glass making. By the age of 20, Daniel had developed a line of glass, all his own.
Most of his pieces are layered in very heavy crystal, creating works of incredible depth. Daniel is one of the few artists in the world who work in excess of 50 pounds.
Daniel developed such floral patterns as the Anthurium, Tulipticus, Cactus flower, and Cynthia flower.
In 1998 he developed chandeliers and sconces. He even designs his own bronze fittings.
Today, he continues to create beautiful pieces of glass. Daniel’s floral vases, perfume bottles and lamps are created in his Crete, Illinois studio and grace the shelves of many fine galleries.
Lotton Glass is documented today in museums such as the Smithsonian, the Metropolitan, the Corning Museum, the High Museum, the Toledo Museum, The Art Institute of Chicago; in fact almost every leading museum in America
