I have managed to acquire some of those big plastic bread trays like the
bread delivery trucks have--they are heavy plastic, about 2' x 3' and have
holes in the bottom. AND they stack on one another. They are Marvelous for
clay slabs because they allow the clay to get air circulation from top and
bottom, thus helping to prevent warpage. Just another handy tip from an
arts ed net groupie.

Had to share a Women's Art Month thing. My son is 22 and finishing up a
fine art degree. He's taking a Women's Twentieth Century Art class (I think
he did it to meet girls, but anyway). He came home one day complaining
about how much time she spent on 70's art, women's movement art, penis art,
etc. He commented that he didn't know what the big deal was. The movement
didn't mean so much that we had to have protest art--did it?? TEE HEE.
He was born in 75--and raised by a mother (me) who from day one made sure he
knew we are all equal--and I MEANT it. ANd he can cook and do dishes and
could at an early age. I think I was pleased--he didn't appreciate the
women's movement because he had always recognized (as he was raised) that
women weren't his underlings. It was sweet.
