INDEX: October 2013

THIS month we offer two related special features: profiles on the work of Steve Hitman, of Stillwater Stoneworks, and Maine Sculptor Jesse Salisbury, an important American sculptor, and organizer and participant in the world-class Scoodic Sculpture Symposium (see the SRG December 2012 issue in our online archive). Both are artists in stone, in their own way.  I hope our readers find the product reviews insightful, especially the new Stone Pro device for ADA compliant vanity installation. Profit from the advice penned by our special advisors in the stone industry, who strive to be experts in their craft – just like our readers. Send your letters and comments to If your shop is doing something interesting–we want to tell your story.L.H
