INDEX: December 2012

This issue we present stories from both coasts: completed Schoodic Symposium sculptures go to their permanent sites in Maine, and we offer an exclusive interview with Donato Pompo, stone and tile industry educator and consultant out on the west coast. In this Holiday issue, we also present information on the upcoming trade shows and end-of-the year product reviews, industry news, and general good advice and tips. Have a good read, and all of us at the Slippery Rock wish a happy and prosperous new year to all our readers.
