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.

  7. Great cause and lovely bowls. I am especially fond of thrown pots, though that record album is a fun bowl!
