David, sex change operations on Clayart!?!? I guess an off hand type of
relationship could be made to link the aformentioned to clay in some
fashion. Perhaps some type of "sex-change" derby ought to be held, right
here on the net with jpegs of our latest clay vision of the wood-fired (or
is it) sex change. A before and after sorta thing.The pieces don't even need
to be of the homo sapien variety. Let's just let the imaginations go.
As to the performance of the new, er, a "equipment" whose to say. This
query might best be answered by the folks that have em, or not, as the case
may be.
