Through our website we just received a call for help from a lady who is t=
to get an empty Bowls project running in The Colony area of Texas. Here i=
portion of her letter:
"Forgive me in advance for wasting your very artistic time! I just don't =
where else to look... I am part of an event called the North Texas Soup N=
We are looking to raise money for a food pantry in The Colony, Texas.
I am trying to figure out a way to make several hundred bowl for people t=
soup out of and then take home as a reminder of their contribution to the=
pantry and the needs of struggling families.
Please, I don't know what else to do except ask: do you have any ideas fo=
how I can teach some volunteers (kids from the school I work at) as well =
supervising adults, how to do this simlpy and cost effectively????"
We have suggested the most obvious way (to us) would be to slump mold a=3D2=
series of bowls and find a potter's club or guild or some local potter wh=
take them, fire them, glaze them and glaze fire them all again before the=
January. Obviously it is a little far away from us for us to personally g=
assistance, but we are wondering if there is someone in her area who migh=
able to help.
Her name is Sara and her email address, which she has given us permission=
release is firstname.lastname@example.org
We are hoping there is someone out there who can help her out. We spoke=3D2=
with her on the phone tonight and she seems to be a really good person wh=
wants to do good things for the less advantaged.
All the best,
