TINY HOUSES & HOT GLASS

September 21, 2017

THE MISSOURI/SOUTHERN ILLINOIS NKBA CHAPTER, ALONG WITH HALLMARK BUILDING SUPPLIES INC. HOSTED A SPECIAL PRESENTATION ON THE RISING TREND OF “TINY HOUSES” IN THE HEART OF DELMAR @ THIRD DEGREE GLASS FACTORY ON THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 14TH. THE EVENT STARTED WITH AN OPEN BAR NETWORKING MIXER WITH A COLORFUL AND DELICIOUS SPREAD OF HORS D’OEUVRES (PROVIDED BY HALLMARK BUILDING SUPPLIES INC.) DURING THAT TIME WE WERE ALSO FREE TO EXPLORE THE RUSTIC AND CHARMING THIRD-DEGREE GLASS FACTORY. EACH ITEM ON DISPLAY IN THEIR GALLERY WAS EXTREMELY BREATHTAKING TO SAY THE LEAST! EVEN THE RESTROOMS BOASTED COLORFUL AND EXCTING GLASS DESIGNS CREATED BY THE THIRD DEGREE ARTISTS THEMSELVES.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE MEET & MINGLE WAS FOLLOWED BY A WONDERFUL PRESENTATION LEAD BY JANNE MAHAN, OF BSH HOME APPLIANCES. WE LEARNED ABOUT & DISCUSSED THE APPEAL OF TINY HOUSES IN TODAY’S WORLD, AS WELL AS WHO IS LIVING IN THEM, AND OF COUSE WE TALKED ABOUT HOW TO MAXIMIZE STORAGE IN A TINY ENVIRONMENT. WE ALSO LEARNED ABOUT THE TYPES OF TINY HOUSING, WHERE THESE TRENDS ARE POPPING UP AND HOW ITS WORKING OUT FOR THOSE ALREADY TRYING THIS NEW LIFESTYLE TREND.

 

 

THE SESSION FINISHED OFF WITH A FABULOUS GLASS BLOWING PRESENTATION BY TWO OF THIRD DEGREE’S SEASONED GLASS ARTISIANS. WE WATCHED AS THEY PULLED GLOWING HOT BLOBS OF GLASS OUT OF 1100 DEGREE PLUS OVENS, ON LONG METAL RODS WHICH THEY USED TO SPIN & BLOW THE MOLTEN HUNK OF GLASS INTO A GORGEOUS ART PIECE BEFORE OUR EYES! 

 

 

 

 

WE ALSO GOT TO WALK AWAY WITH SOME WONDERFUL DESIGN TOOLS PROVIDED BY HALLMARK BUILDING SUPPLIES INC. I WAS LUCKY TO SCORE A BRAND-NEW SET OF DUPONT CORIAN SOLID SURFACE SAMPLES AS WELL AS DUPONT ZODIAQ QUARTZ SAMPLES WITH ALL OF THE FRESHEST NEW COLORS AND DESIGNS! IT WAS A MAGICAL EVENT TO REMEMBER, THAT IS FOR SURE!
