Scott Bayless was raised in a small town in upstate New York. His interests in glass developed at an early age with a visit to the Corning Glass Works.
After moving to Chicago in 1994, Scott began doing finishing work for Charles Lotton, one of the top glass artists in the world. It was at the Lotton Art Glass studio, that his dream of learning to make blown glass was finally realized. He then became Charles’ apprentice for eight years and learned his craft under the glass master.
He is now creating his own distinctive line of art glass using the centuries old hot glass techniques that have been passed down to him. Scott's creations can be found in galleries across the country.
