The highlight of the Symposium this year was a talk with guests Charles Lotton and Max Erlacher. Family members David and Kimberly Lotton, and grandson Robert Lagestee were also in attendance. Hosted by Tom Dimitroff, pictures of Charles and Max and their respective families were shared.
Charles revealed that he had been a successful hair stylist for 13 years before learning to blow glass in his backyard. What is the key to the Lotton success? Charles said, "I love making glass."
Max also shared his beginnings as an engraver in Austria and his many years at Steuben.
Charles shared pictures of him and his grandson Robert making a glass vase, then sending it to Max to engrave. The finished piece was shown to attendees.
What a special treat to hear these two accomplished men share their stories and their long-time affiliation with each other.
