Thanks to everyone who came out and participated in the Empty Bowl-a-thon at Mars Hill University last night! A big thank you to these 13 potters who threw over 200 bowls (!!) in about 90 minutes:
All proceeds from these bowls will benefit Neighbors in Need of Madison County. The Empty Bowls event will be held at Mars Hill Baptist Church on April 10th from 5-7 pm.
Thanks, too, to the non-throwers who came and hung out and helped out, and a special thank you to John Hartom (co-founder, with Lisa Blackburn, of Empty Bowls) for joining us. When the throwing was done, we enjoyed kiln-warmed pizza and more.
A few announcements:
• I shared some information from Lori Theriault of the Village Potters about a Downtown Welcome Table plate-decorating opportunity and clay that is available for Empty Bowls events. See this post for all the details: https://ncclayclub.blogspot.com/2019/02/downtown-welcome-table-plate-decorating.html
• Michael Rutkowsky shared information about the class he and Ruth are teaching at John C. Campbell Folk School in March. More info here: https://ncclayclub.blogspot.com/2019/02/design-and-function-scandinavian-style.html
• and John Hartom shared that the opening reception of the In Tandem Gallery exhibition of his and Michael Kline's work will be this Saturday from 4-7 pm.
March Clay Club will be at East Fork Pottery in Asheville on March 13th - look for more details about that soon.
Thanks again to all the Empty Bowl throwers, to Shane Mickey and the Mars Hill University students - and to everyone who came!
