I take a bit of different volunteering avenue for empty bowls. I belong to, Cream City Clay in West Allis, Wisconsin. I and my fellow members made the bowls that I take to a senior center. The lovely energetic seniors decorate the bowls for the fundraiser. It was amazing, there was a blind woman who painted a gorgeous bowl. I got to meet the woman who picked her bowl and the told her the story of who did the art work. It was wonderful, she hugged the bowl like it was a family heirloom. I am not sure when I will be able to do it this year. I am currently making the bowls in hopes to do that again. If not, they will be added to the 500 plus bowls that Cream City Clay donates to the fundraiser. I am huge fan of volunteering for the event. I see people there with the determination to find ‘the perfect bowl’-actually makes me giggle a bit. It is serious fun to volunteer. Plus, you can roll me home after the soup I eat-I’m not a good cook so gourmet soup, not from a box is a treat. Besides making bowls, decorations bowls and volunteering, I buy my share of bowls, sweatshirts, mugs -when they have them. I love art and I love that I can share my love of ceramics and give back.
The pictures are from the painting event at the senior center. The two bowls are from me.
Thank you for the stamp. I have been writing empty bowls on the bottom of the bowls. It will look better on some of the smaller bottom bowls if I can stamp it. My goal is to make 100 bowls to start.
Have a great day and be safe.
