About This Exhibition

ΓΏ Dr. Robert Burnstein, a Detroit psychiatrist, began collecting glass in the 1980s. He was attracted to American glass of the 19th and 20th centuries because, as he stated, it was a time when handcrafted expertise and precision craftsmanship were the benchmarks of the American glass industry.

Soon he came to find that among American companies, the glass produced by Steuben was unsurpassed in quality, color intensity, and breadth of design.

Therefore, he focused his collecting first on Steuben, then on candlesticks in particular. He concentrated on candlesticks given their elegance of design and great variety of their colors and decorative techniques. Dr. Burnstein has presented his collection in honor of his parents, Donald and Arlene Burnstein.

Artist Charles Lotton

I was sorry to hear of the passing of Charles Lotton. He was part of the American Studio Glass Movement where artists worked independently of glass factories. Charles was not trained in the making of glass. He built a studio and furnace in his back yard and then taught himself to make beautiful glass. How amazing is that!
