Have you heard of the annual Empty Bowls dinner in Fredericksburg? It’s a community fundraiser for Empowerhouse that brings together potters, volunteers, cooks, musicians, and supporters united in a common effort to end domestic violence. LibertyTown, where I used to work as their Pottery Tech, hosts an event they call “Bowl-a-Rama” beforehand, where they supply the clay and materials and then invite potters of functioning skill level to throw bowls all day! These bowls, after they’re glazed and fired, will be used as dinner bowls by guests in the fundraiser for Empowerhouse.
The kiln again did not disappoint! I have twenty beautiful bowls read to be sent on their way to Empowerhouse for their Empty Bowls dinner.
