In the early 1970s American art glass artist Charles Lotton began experimenting in art glass and then decided in 1973 to leave an established profession to pursue his passion in art glass. This breathtaking 4 ¼” vase shows that he made the right decision. The iridescent vase has an undulating vine pattern around its circumference with striking blue flowers and rich green leaves. Just the feel of the glass exudes quality. Lotton’s works are permanently housed in the Corning Museum of Art, The Smithsonian, and the Art Institute of Chicago and are in private collections throughout the world.
The vase is substantial for its size, weighing around 14 oz. The bottom is ground, and in the smooth bottom he has signed and dated the piece. This was made only six years after he decided to follow his love of art glass, but his artistry is evident in this beautiful vessel. It is in excellent condition with no cracks, chips, or flea bite.
This piece is one of many in an art glass collection that we recently acquired, and on the bottom is a white sticker with the inventory number 62 so that we can keep each piece straight!
