    I love texture and organic forms, and when this Charles Lotton vase came up, I flipped over it and was fortunate enough to get it at auction. It was listed as circa 1978 but was inscribed "Lotton". I found it curious that a piece from that year wouldn't have his full name, which he was using by '78. When it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to see it was dated 1974, which explained why it only had his last name. He didn't start using "Charles" until later when his sons started glassblowing and each needed to to identify their own work. So many things excite me about the vase; the lava, the veining, the texture, the ruby ground, the lipless rim, the colors and the form... I guess you can tell I love it!! It measures 6 1/4" h x 6" w and is in pristine condition.

      Lovely Rick :)..... I'm always amazed at the actual size of these pieces. They seem quite small for the amount of work put into them, like little jewels.

      Stunning Piece RICK!! So Glad you joined CW to allow us to see your collection of Glass!! It is amazing!!

      Sorry haven't been around as much, been busy -- and having some medical issues. I am a diabetic here.......runs in the family. .....and with Such *SWEET* looking glass you have -- makes my blood sugars go out of whack......LOL.

      j/k..... ;-))))
    13. Mac63 Mac63, 6 years ago
      The more I see his work the more I want one or two or....in my collection. I saw a piece last month and now regret not picking it up.
    14. Rick55 Rick55, 6 years ago
      Thanks so much for the positive comments and love Rose and Mac, it's appreciated.

      @Mac... I love his work - especially ones with some sort of textured finish. Here's another I posted when I first joined CW: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/129362-david-lotton-vase

      @Rose... I'm glad you explained your absence because I've been waiting to scold you! I'm sorry to hear about your diabetes... as a member of the "SWEET" club myself, I know it can be difficult to manage...
    15. AnneLanders AnneLanders, 6 years ago
      sorry Rick, I missed these few you listed, how divine...I love these dazzling pieces...
    16. AnneLanders AnneLanders, 6 years ago

      Rick you have some wonderful pieces of glass, the problem for me, is I don't have the space to start up a collection. I see some wonderful pieces, from lots of people. I do enjoy the listings.
    19. Rick55 Rick55, 6 years ago
      Thanks so much Jean. I no longer have space either. I'm not much into having something tucked away without seeing it, so I have to sell something in order to make room for a new one.
    20. antiquerose antiquerose, 6 years ago
      @Rick55 -- agree, but then I feel that my glass is like *family* and hard to let them go.....LOL.....and can't kick them out. I have a hard time to part with some of my pieces.

      ~ ~ I think I need the "GLASS 12 Step Program"....LOL

      Believe me Rosie, I went through the same thing. I saved everything - from my 70's clothes to my old worthless baseball cards. Closets, boxes, attic... all loaded with "treasures". It took Gloria a looong time to convince me that I wasn't really enjoying them if they were tucked away somewhere out of sight. It took me until step 8 before I was able to cut loose some of my "kids" lol.
