NEWSFLASH UPDATE - JUNE 28, 2011
 

EVENT PIECES

Fire & ICE

The HK House of Peers celebrated Fire & ICE – its 2011 convention.
Collectors of Harmony Kingdom and Adam Binder Editions enjoyed our guest artists:
PETER CALVESBERT and ADAM BINDER.
 

(Photos represent solid prototypes of the figurines. The final versions may differ.)
 

EVENT PIECES

Both of our guest artists have created special pieces for this event. Peter Calvesbert chose "fire" as his inspiration for the Early Bird piece, while Adam Binder chose "ice" as his inspiration, creating the main event piece.
 

LIGHT MY FIRE

Peter created Light My Fire, which may explain how the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 really started. This piece was available to those who registered for the convention at the Collector level, with a minimum deposit before November 15, 2010, and a final payment by February 14, 2011. It will also be given to qualified sponsors of the event. For more information visit our SPONSORSHIP page.


LIGHT MY FIRE REDUX

Light My Fire Redux

Peter created a second version, Light My Fire Redux, as an event fundraiser. Any attendee, Collector or Associate, has the right to purchase up to two pieces. Mrs. O'Leary's cow forgot to dress for the occasion and is now sporting a tie, has some interesting reading material, plus other changes. This piece replaces Light My Fire Version 2.

PROHIBITION PETE

Prohibition Pete PendantA Prohibition era mobster complete with a Tommy Gun and a fedora hat. Mobsters in that era ruled the speakeasy taverns and lawless streets with Thompson machine guns. Smartly pin-stripped dressed gangsters and flappers danced the evening away at a time when romance reigned supreme and illegal liquor empowered the already brazen disdain for authority. Legends and timeless names were born during this time, Al Capone, Elliott Ness, and others. The U.S. was painfully undergoing growth from the industrial expansion and fortunes were made. Chicago attracted them all and was the demise of many it lead astray. A big town filled with big money and big players during big times.

Our Prohibition Pete is a pendant caved by Peter Calvesbert. This is a 'right-to-buy' pendant offered to attendees of the Fire & ICE convention. The funds raised from the sale of this pendant goes to Pete, which he uses to bring his family to the event. We have the privilege of having Andrea with us once again. The cost of this 'right-to-buy' pendant is $25 each.

As a thank you to the people who participate, with the purchase of a pendant, Pete is making 10 pendants in a special color which will be given as gifts. During the Brunch Finale on Sunday, Pete will draw 10 names from the participants who purchased the pendant. These 10 lucky winners will receive his special version of Prohibition Pete, at no cost.

POLAR BEAR AND SEAL

Polar Bear and SealA set of two pendants, Polar Bear and Seal, is Adam Binder's personal piece (set). The funds raised from the sale of this set goes to Adam. This is a boxed set of two pendants at $50 per set.

On Sunday morning Adam will also thank people who participated, with the purchase of a pendant set, with several black-stained versions (the regular version is brown) to be given away as gifts. During the Brunch Finale on Sunday, Adam will draw names from the participants who purchased the pendants. Several lucky winners will receive his special black-stained version set of Polar Bear and Seal, at no cost.

It takes a lot of volunteers to make an event like this successful. This year, we have a special way to say "Thanks" for helping. Volunteers who work at least a three (3) hour shift during the event (or who did at least three hours helping to prepare for the event) will have the 'right-to-buy' a special color version of Peter's cat pendant, Elliott the Cat, for $25! In addition, all volunteers go into a drawing for a solid event prototype.
