>There are some wonderful work posted on WOW, some that I really admire. Along with some accomplished turners that I highly respect.

But there is also work on WOW that just I can't seems to grasp. Sometimes it's listed a "political art" but to me it looks juvenile at best. I was amazed at how many people fawned over a few piece of turned horse manure, to me it looked like crap. Pun intended. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should, and calling it art is a far reach for poorly executed work.

I'm not really interested in wood sculpture and I see allot of it on WOW. Nothing wrong with it, just not my cup of tea.

There is some really innovative work going on by some very highly accomplished artists. The direction some have taken is truly amazing. I would love to own a piece or two from some of the big names on WOW.

There is also work that is posted which I feel has no place on WOW. But I'm not the owner of WOW, so I respect the right of the owner to allow what he feels is appropriate. I rarely visit WOW anymore.

The bottom line is, I like traditional turnings. I guess I'm just boring.
