i am not sure what is meant by j. koons "appropriation artist"
joe koons was a chemist/glaze expert.  he worked for 50 years to
make historic chinese hare's fur glaze.  it was very personal research
that i had a small part in completing the study..

he has never been an artist.  his only fame is one of the
best glaze makers around.  his study of historic glazes has
nothing to do with contemporary art.  and, doing anything with
glazes that are near two thousand years old would be totally
legitimate.

if you are talking about joe koons from laguna clay, you are
totally wrong and doing an assassination of very fine and honest
fellows history.
