Way back in January I had mentioned that I took a ceramics class with my little sister. Little did I know that the pottery wheel and I would become the best of friends. After the city class I took, I enrolled in a community college class with my little sister and I became a fiend, more on that later. I promise to post about my first semester after this post. Promise!
Anyhow, I was introduced to a charity called Empty Bowls. Pretty much the way it works is you buy your ticket, choose a bowl donated by a local artisan and then have soup in it. You get to keep the bowl when all is said and done. I donated a few bowls that I made last month to 5 Cities Homeless Coalition.
These were just a few of the bowls people donated for the charity event.
This is the bowl I selected.
And here is a really blurry picture of the line to get my soup.
Pictured below are the bowls I donated.

|This one was pretty popular with my fellow potters.|
|Not a fan of this one and it slightly warped in the last firing.|
|This glazing turned out a happy accident.|
