That is lovely. 1990 is not vintage to me. I own his vases from the early 1970 s. 1972 is the earliest I have seen. About three years ago we stopped at the factory. We watched a perfume bottle made and bought a paperweight.  Charles was sitting in his office and told a man that "the gas company loves me!" Go figure! My best memory is walking across downtown Grand Haven, Michigan to an ice cream stand and he bought me ice cream.

How long has he been in Michigan? Last I knew he was still in Illinois. Lansing and Crete, IL. Any one else working for him except family?

Sorry I did not mean to mislead. The Chickadee and Holly store carried Lotton. Charles was there for a weekend and said that he would like to see a glass museum for modern studio glass in the area. That was when he asked if there was a ice cream place in walking distance.
 As far as I know the Lansing location has for a number of years been having non-family workers producing glass signed as "STUDIO MARK." THE CRETE  location is wonderful. Not sure what year he built it. The office building and sales floor is filled with lamps both table and floor style. Got $5G  and up? Vases and paperweights. Also some not for sale keepsakes. A nice antique mall in town where we have found paperweights.   Bob

Glassman: thanks for the info. Charles and I go back to when he had his studio in the old lumberyard. in Indiana.  I used to stop in and see him all the time when he had his place in Burnham. he's a very good artist and sharp businessman as well.
