BECon 2009 – Winning Odd Couples

After spending an afternoon “On the Couch with Clifford” – a broad-ranging and perfectly-paced  interview between Richard Whiteley and Clifford Rainey on the latter’s history, methods, teaching philosophies and opinions of dragon-stemmed Venetian goblets – and an exceptionally thought-provoking Keynote by Janet Koplos on “What Glass Wants to Be When It Grows Up”, the  first day of BECon 2009 came to its lively conclusion at the gallery reception.

The BAM (Button Art Match) game drove inquisitive party-goers through both floors of the gallery searching for their “matches” – anyone wearing a button with art picture matching his/her own.

Bob Stephan (right)  of HIS Glassworks found an unexpected match in this sartorial sibling  (No, I don’t think they’d met before – or if they did, hadn’t checked wardrobes before their trips)

It was that kind of day – unexpected collisions of ideas, opinions, art and aloha shirts. A great way to start a conference.

  1. The person on the left is Herb Dang who is obviously a very cheerful person. He’s connected with Public Glass in San Francisco and is also a buddy of mines. I’ve never seen him without his grin!
