Empty Bowls

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
Today, I 'd like to show you some of the 1,200 bowls that artists of Pierce County, WA, made and sold during the Empty Bowl event (11/18/2012)
 to help feed the hungry.
All proceeds go to the Emergency Food Network.
Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger whose basic premise is simple:
Potters and other craftspeople, educators, students and others create handcrafted bowls that are meant to remind people of all of the empty bowls in the world.

One of the artists, Jen Davis, with her beautiful bowl at the event:

Please, join the Empty Bowl fundraiser in your area.

You can read about the event HERE and HERE.

    1. Alison, thanks and Happy Thanksgiving to you! This was the first time that I attended this event. I didn't expect to see so many people! And, several restaurants served customers delicious warm soup!

  3. I loved the bowls. They are the one of the most basic, utilitarian & beautiful art forms. Happy Thanksgiving. It's nice to have a day without rain.
