The Empty Bowls Project happens every year, all over the world, benefiting many different organizations, but they've all got one underlying theme - fighting hunger in your community. In the fall of 2015, we had OUR FIRST bowl sale to benefit the backpack buddies program - an organization that helps get food to over 400 youngsters in inner city schools every weekend.
that's a wrap on empty bowls 2017! this year after our annual sale on the last wednesday of november we also popped up at several events around the city and we're excited to announce that we raised $4200. over the past three years we've raised over $10,000. an enormous thank you goes out to all the potters who have donated their work to this cause - this event wouldn't exist without you and i can't thank you enough for helping us make a difference!
we'll see you all in 2018!
THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT EVERYONE!!

Whether you've been throwing for years or just took your first hand building class - we want your bowls!
I've learned a ton from ceramics, but one thing that's really stuck out for me is how much others often like your work more than you do. Another persons eye doesn't have as many anticipated expectations for a piece - most folks are just stoked that you hand made a beautiful ceramic bowl that looks like nothing they've ever seen BEFORE.
Bowls from all and every skill level are encouraged and welcome!
