Charles G. Lotton, a successful beauty salon entrepreneur, first developed an interest in beautiful glass as a collector. Following this passion, he began in 1970 to teach himself the art of glass blowing, and in 1973 switched to professional glass-making as a full time career.

Lotton experimented with many different techniques, to develop a unique and secret formula for creating magnificent colors of glass.

Charles Lotton is often described as being the Louis Comfort Tiffany of the 20th century.
