INDEX: January 2013

JANUARY has become a month of trade shows for the stone and flooring industries. We have an exciting year of stories planned to present to our readers, and in this issue we offer an exclusive interview with Davis Ellison and Richard Horne, and one of their award-winning collaborations in custom tile and stone. Enjoy the shop and product review of Glassos®, and CCS Stone, reviews on the new Polishing King Tool review, the new Noble linear drain products, and the Seam Phantom. We hope you make good use of the information on upcoming trade shows, as well as the general good advice and tips from our industry experts. All of us at the Slippery Rock send our readers sincere wishes for a prosperous start to the year – L.H.
