What is the concept. I'm sorry but I'm a little cloudy on it. Any art on a pedestal? Is the art supposed to be about pedestals? Or be on a pedestal?

Could you please clarify?

...just got back to this site. Thank you for posting! The theme is open to interpretation. So feel free to follow your own thoughts on this.

Dear Friends at Pie Studio,
I am really intrigued by your studio concept. I have always felt that process is the really important part of art, not the finished product. I've always enjoyed Jim's work, so I will be watching to see what interesting things you all do next.
