as moderator i feel very obliged to start
philosophical debate on clayart. it is critical
to thinking about our craft/art.

we cannot just be a recipe exchange, or we die
a sudden death of boredom.

i often wide brush it. it is the only way
to start clear debate.
my opinions are secondary. i try and start
discussion. others wade in, clear the air, start
new debate. it is very healthy. no feelings should ever
be hurt. keep broad shoulders.

as we all come and go, debate carries on.
clear thinking is critical in art. we must always
be willing to stand up and `get after the junk and crap`.
we cannot be idle.
