" Charles P. McKee (Bud) was a dynamic instructor. He was
one of those really strong personality types that one either really
likes or hates. I liked him and still do. At my young 23 years of
age, every thing was exciting and the things he said were challenging;
he made me think. The preconceived was always questioned. Could
a pot transcend craft and become art? Was it possible for a clay
object to ever be seen as fine art (the answer is still out on that
one)? Where did influence stop and plagiarism begin? Was it ever
possible not to be influenced and did "TRUE" creativity
come out nothingness? The one thing I learned; It's good to think
about things but better to make art".
