I would love to see a challenge that calls for first busting something up, then using the bits to create something entirely different.

Not just china, but musical instruments, dismembered dolls, shredded greeting cards, furniture, purses, board games, greatcoats, rugs, old cars, ye old dog house, bicycles, the list goes on. Requirement is you need to get out your sledgehammers (or seam rippers, same thing) and take apart at least 50 percent of your original item(s) then create something using the parts. Only added items are from the original item(s) and glue or other fastenings.

Wow, I will be there would be some seriously cool entries for this!!
