David Lotton Glass Designs was established in 1978, since then this self-taught, mid-western artist has pursued his passion for glass making creating his “one of a kind” vases, sculptures, paperweights and pendants.
Located in the rural country side of the mid-west, David Lotton and son, Jeremiah Lotton, work diligently creating their unique designs using the traditional, old world techniques of glass blowing. Inspired by his love for farming and his experience with raising cattle, David incorporates his love for nature into each design.
Developing his own individual glass formulas, David has created a complex palette of colors, giving him the ability to develop and formulate his layering and sculpting style. Each leaf, flower and threaded pattern has been handcrafted with precision, giving unprecedented consideration to detail and depth. Year after year, David studies and refines the techniques he uses in creating his art.
His world renowned floral patterns all capture David’s love for detail, color combining and the depth of layering. The Clematis Reflection series, Hollyhock Paperweight series as well as the Mixed Bouquet all reflect the beauty of color, form and technique of a lifetime’s work. The Organic Sculptural pieces reflect freedom of movement and the rich depth of a summer sunset.
David Lotton creations are treasured by art glass collectors throughout the world. His work is on display in many fine galleries and museums nationwide. David’s work has been described as timeless, pure beauty forever captured in time. To own David Lotton Art is to own a piece of history!
“My approach to glass stems out of my love to create beautiful things with many different types of material. I enjoy working with high quality raw woods, durable metals as well as highly refined glass. In creating my art I incorporate my love for different textures, shapes and color combinations. Every day is a new day to experiment, stretching the envelope of what is possible with all sorts of materials I have on hand. I often tell my wife, “One man’s junk is another man's treasure”.
“I am inspired by all I see in nature, the rolling fields of hay on our Kentucky farm, the fresh growth of alfalfa in our back yard and the power and strength of our Black Angus bulls. Nature is constantly trying to throw you a curve ball just as glass does. You have to have patience, persistence and stamina to succeed in producing a sellable product. The last 30 years has been a journey, I have learned a lot by trial and error. So many people today hate their jobs, I am very fortunate to be able to do what I love to do.”
