Carder Steuben Club 2018 Symposium
The Carder Steuben Club proudly announces its 18th Annual Carder Steuben Symposium - October 11 - 13, 2018 This year the Club welcomes Charles Lotton, renowned contemporary glassblower.
Charles Lotton was born in 1935 in a little southern Illinois town called Elizabethtown. A very simple beginning in life brought Charles to his faith in the Lord, as well as the gift to dream. He remembers his childhood home, a one room cabin. His mom washed clothes down at the creek to make ends meet. Years later a dream and prayers led Charles to build a furnace in the backyard. Here, he taught himself the art of glassblowing. Forty-Five + years later&. While most men think of retirement, Charles awakes each day with new dreams for his future. Charles forward thinking has already given him a place in history. His glass creations are found in hundreds of museums such as The Art Institute, The Smithsonian, The Chrysler Museum and the Ronald Regan Library only to name a few. If you are a glass collector, his work speaks for itself. A piece of Charles Lottons glass is a piece of history in your hands.
