    Don't feel bad.... I ended up with a C in my art appreciation class in college. The instructor wasn't impressed with a stop sign I painted flesh color around the "STOP", then shot holes through it with an M-1 (a 22 just dented the metal) and used red paint to look like blood dripping from the holes. It was during the Vietnam War and I thought it was a brilliant work of anti-war artwork. She didn't (probably a damned hawk) :)

    This instrutor thinks we are master art students or something. It is ceramics 1, introduction to ceramics. What does she want?

    Gene as I have said before it's about "risk"

    Remember Gary Larsons "Cow Tools"?...it's one of my faves too...but then I'm a little twisted... ;)
