I named these vases I'm making "Peace Vases"....Actually I gave them =
that title the day BEFORE all hell broke loose....It's kinda like god(my =
good buddy) was unleashing a rainbow before the storm.....I'm writing =
PEACE on the bottoms...The concept has grown since Sept 10.....I love a =
cool concept.....In this case the concept is that, with some help, =
everyone will get one and then be too busy looking for flowers to steal =
to commit senseless acts of violence and exploitation....When you are =
choosing a flower for your sweetie you can't be thinking about the bad =
things....From the beginning my Art has been consciously oriented toward =
the good things....No cross in a bottle of piss from me!...No "Madonna =
With Tits"....
I would like to invite all you good people to make your own "Peace =
Vases".....The only requirement is the word Peace on the bottom...The =
design and details would be all your own....I see them as small vases =
for single flowers.... You may see them big as houses.....I have found =
them to be very cathartic...It would be soooo cool to someday pick up a =
small unknown vase somewhere and see "Peace" written on the bottom(What =
is the Latin for peace?)(French?)(Arabic?)Greek?).....So all you guys =
whipp up a couple little vases with "Peace" on the bottom....OK?.....I =
think you can handle it......I know some of you can.....I have about 75 =
at present....Can anyone beat that?....Bear in mind when you are =
competing with me that I will be adding to my total so you will be =
starting out behind....I'm not asking that you turn your entire =
production over to them....Just make enough so everyone you meet can =
have one....That should be easy because people tend to run in gangs so =
there will be overlap with other potters....All right?...Any problems?
Mine don't even take up much space in the kiln....

"I only indulge when I've seen a snake, so I keep a supply of =
indulgences and snakes handy"
