In my enthusiasm I hit the wrong key so have lost the address for the
information on the Empty Bowl project. A local group home for
abused/neglected children is very interested in pursuing this as a fundraiser
but would like more info. Does anyone have the address and if so would you
please forward it to Clayfem@aol.com?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Thanks too to all of you who've entered here and shared your wisdom, energy,
enthusiasm, compassion and love. It is awesome, however remotely, to be part
of such a community!
Wishing you and yours a blessed season and a fulfilling new year.

Dear Clayart friends, I am a little late in reporting our Empty Bowls =
event here in Reading Pennsylvania but I wanted you to know that it was =
very successful. Actually this was the fourth year it was held but the =
first year that I was involved and professional potters were invited to =
donate pots. Last year only $300 was raised but this year with your =
help we raised over $2500. I want to thank all of you that donated =
pots. You were very generous. Everyone was very pleased at the turnout =
and the pots were great. I have heard of other cities making far more =
money but our town is not huge and now I think the event will get even =
more attention next year and will be even better. Thanks again. Nancy =

My high school ceramics students would really benefit from getting involved in an empty bowl project. I'd love to start on e in my school. Does anyone have experience doing this with high school students? Is each project unique? Do we research and find a charity? Any advice or direction is appreciated. Thanks Diane

Check out www.emptybowls.net.
Empty Bowls was actually started by two high school teachers and
the first event was done with bowls made by their students. Go for
it! John and Lisa, who started the project, are trying to keep the
project focused on hunger relief, so please choose a charity related
to hunger if you are going to use the Empty Bowls name. They
have a packet of info that they will send you, with lots of good
ideas, and I'm sure John would also be happy to help you figure out
how to work it out. Their contact info is on the website.

Brooklyn Potters (www.brooklynpotters.org), a NYC-based non-profit
group of ceramic artists, has been participating in an ongoing Empty
Bowls project for the past eleven years. We have a display in a local
cafe and sell bowls all year round. The proceeds go to C.H.I.P.S.
(Christian Help in Park Slope, www.chipsonline.org), a local non-
denominational soup kitchen and women's shelter.
We are preparing to rededicate our efforts in this project with a
refreshed display and a ceremony on November 14th. We would truly
appreciate it if anyone in the ceramic community would donate some
bowls to our display.
Here's the info:
We need bowls which are "soup bowl" sized; not tiny, not huge--think
a serving of soup or stew. The bowls sell for a donation of $25 (or
if the buyer is feeling generous). They should be nice quality; no
seconds. Any color or shape is fine. We will need them by early
Please send the bowls to:
1205 Manhattan Avenue, #241
Brooklyn, NY 11222
Thank you for your generosity! If you have any questions, please

I'll definitely try to send some to you! I'll also tell some other
students here at my college about it and maybe we can send more! :-)
