Lotton Gallery is located on historic Michigan Avenue in the 900 (Bloomingdale’s) Building, Chicago. We feature the handblown glass by an
American family of artists. Charles Lotton is the patriarch,
self-taught in the art of glassblowing in 1970. He is now regarded as,
“The Tiffany of the Twenty-First Century.” His sons David, Daniel and
John learned alongside their father. Each is now an artist of
distinction. Grandson Jeremiah began his career in 2000. Jeremiah’s
brother, Joshua, has since joined the mix, as well as Daniel’s son
Timothy, adding to the third generation.
Additions to our glass artist stable are Rick Satava, Will Dexter,
George Bucquet, Marty Hook, Geoffrey Beetem, Adam Kaser, Markow &
Norris, Mayauel Ward, Donald Carlson and Michael Hopko.
Massimo Lunardon was born in Marostica (Vicenza) in 1964. Graduating in industrial design from Domus Academy in 1991, he made blown glass his personal field for artistic and design research. He has worked with various companies and architectural firms to create prototypes as well as objects in limited series. He has been the professor of flameworking at the Vetroricerca School in Bolzano since 1998. From 1992 to date, he has participated in many art gallery and museum exhibitions both in Italy and abroad. Using his experience in design - developed during his many years of working with designers and architects - and in borosilicate glassmaking techniques, the artist has put together a very interesting project, one that lies at the border between reality and fantasy, between art and design.
Robert Burchhas been working in blown glass since 1971, while maintaining a broad production line he is Increasing his focus on one-of-a-kind and commission work.
His glasswork consists of vases, perfume bottles, paperweights and sculptural pieces, with his current specialty being works that incorporate veiled silver glass with delicate bubble patterns.
Since 1977 Robert’s works have been shown in numerous shows across the country.
Most of my inspiration comes from my natural surroundings, and is further enhanced by the beauty of the glass in its molten state. I am fortunate to have found work that I love and that allows me to be creative.
