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. in the last three years we've raised over $10,000!

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!
