Jerry Heer honed his craft working with his uncle and now an artist in his own right. Jerry's perfume bottles are one of Lotton Studios best-selling glass pieces. Jerry retired in 2011, due to an injury to his back and his pieces have become more rare and sought after. Lotton Gallery is proud to have some very fine pieces of his work.
