Welcome to the RB Beach Glass and the first hidden art piece of the 2016 season. Richmond Beach native Alex Danford-Rincon once again offers one of his wildly-popular glass pieces, Green and White Fish, as #70. All of Alex’s work is made from beach glass he finds along the Richmond Beach shoreline. Learn more about Alex by checking out his contributing artist bio.

This is how RB Beach Glass works: Periodically artwork donated by local artists is hidden in the Richmond Beach neighborhood, free to whoever finds it. We post two clue photos here and on the RBCA Facebook page. The first photo shows the item and the second shows where it is hidden. All hidden art has a tag indicating it’s part of the project and asking that finders post that it is found.

RB Beach Glass, sponsored by the Richmond Beach Community Association, ends for the year with three hidden pieces of art!

The first two are the final icicles by artist Alex Danford-Rincon. RB Beach Glass #60 and #61 – again with the crazy easy clues! – are hidden in Richmond Beach and waiting for the quick hunters to find them. #60 with its clue photo is to the right and #61 is below it.

Alex’s icicles are made of beach glass he finds along the Richmond Beac#61h shores of Puget Sound. Though they were new to RB Beach Glass last year, he’s been making them as holiday gifts for family and friends for years. His list has grown so large, he starts making icicles in the summer.

The third bit of hidden art is a small framed painting of a wreath by artist
and RB Beach Glass project coordinator Susan Will. The original is a pastel painting on black sandpaper. This quality color reproduction has ink and color pencil details added. Susan works in a wide variety of media, but has specialized in pastels for the past 25 years and has been featured in juried shows, galleries and private collections along the west coast.IMG_20151231_133534764#63

12351116_1237475932947558_108084316_nThough icicle weather may not have hit Richmond Beach yet, the first in a series of beach glass icicles by Alex Danford-Rincon is waiting to be found as #54 RB Beach Glass. Eminently more collectible than those they represent, Alex’s icicles made a big splash at last year’s Kruckeberg Botanic Garden Solstice Stroll. With that event on hold this year, Alex plans to hide around 10 icicles throughout Richmond Beach during the rest of December.

RB Beach Glass #53 is the first in hiding since the season turned to fall. It’s actually been waiting in a spot no one has stumbled across for much longer than planned, proof of the value of the hiding spot clue photo. As with all his creations, Alex’s shell wind chime is made of beach glass he finds along the Richmond Beach shores of Puget Sound.

#52Despite fall-like weather storming our shores, RB Beach Glass continues through the remaining days of summer and into fall. Last year the final art was hidden for the winter solstice celebration at the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden so as long as artists and seekers are interested surprises will continue to be hidden.

RB Beach Glass #52 will help the intrepid finder welcome coming storms. Alex Danford-Rincon’s multicolored beach glass wind chime is not just beautiful to behold. “Two neat things about that single piece of green glass hanging lower than the group,” Alex explains. “Firstly, it has ‘Duraglass’ stamped into it! Secondly, it catches even the slightest breeze and causes the whole thing to move, setting off the clinks and tinkles.”

As with all his creations, Alex’s light catcher is made of beach glass he finds along the Richmond Beach shores of Puget Sound. As always, the art is free to whoever finds it – please just let us know as explained below. This might be a tricky one, Beach Glass Hunters. Good luck and happy hunting!
