The Society of American Mosaic Artists annual conference took place in Lexington, Kentucky this year, and No Days made an appearance on the marketplace floor in what we called "the glass corner."

Spectrum Glass was kind enough to donate some of their easy to cut glass for use in our booth, where Don Abel of Morton Glass Works unveiled the long awaited arrival of his new Morton Cutting Surface, as well as showing how quickly and easily you can cut multiples of a variety of shapes ultra-fast using the Portable Glass Shop and the Safety Break System.

|Steve Shupper was demo-ing how the Toyo Glass Cutters work, and
socializing with Susan Gamble of Santa Theresa Tile Works, who played
host to NO Days a few weeks ago for a NO Days Road Show. Susan has been
busily creating new "Skinny Tiles", which are the same thickness of
glass and cut with glass cutting tools!|
|Lots of eye candy at the Santa Theresa Tile Works booth|
|In fact, Susan let me play with some of the skinny tiles and I incorporated them into a quick sample tile with some glass, smalti and NO Days Groutless Mosaic Adhesive.|
