I liked hearing your crit story (Sept. 29 17:41:28) about ceramics and the
professor who broke the pots he didn't like before he critiqued the rest.
There are a couple of details I would really like to know if you have the
time to respond to this. Approximately what year did these "breaking what
he disliked" critiques occur? What kind of school? After two years of
this you decided to make the pottery you liked and to please yourself
rather than him and then he left you alone. Did he leave you alone because
you won his respect, or because he thought you a lost cause, or some other
To the rest of the listserv: Are there professors out there who still
break students' pots or mark on students' drawings?
