About the Artist
Otter Rotolante has been studying art & illustration since grade school. As an undergraduate, he studied ad design & graphics, & later naturalism & botany at the Evergreen State College. In 1996, Otter decided to focus his artistic study in the medium of glass, apprenticing in the European tradition to old time master lampworker Robert Snodgrass. Also taking lessons in furnace blowing (offhand) glass & sculpting from several prominent artists individually & at the Eugene Glass School, he combines ten years of flameworking experience with offhand techniques to bring you the wide array of functionality & designs in his artwork.
