I was asked to participate in this year’s Hungry Bowl event that will benefit our local food banks, and was given a fired but unglazed bowl thrown by the ceramic duo known as “Sheryodi,”
My task was to take that bowl and decorate it either with glaze or paint.
This year the people behind our local Hungry Bowl have produced two events to help raise money to feed our community in need.
Tonight, Oct. 8, there will be a silent art auction for many of the bowls that were given to artists to decorate, along with other donated works of art at Caribé starting at 6 p.m.
Saturday Oct. 10th is the big event where one can purchase a hand thrown or hand built ceramic bowl and fill it with one of many soups donated by our local restaurants.
For a mere 20 bucks you can nourish your body, mind and spirit by purchasing a one-of–a–kind bowl by one of our talented ceramic artists and soup of your choosing.
The big event is being held at the new high school and starts at 5 p.m.
Kudo’s to the Eureka Springs Pottery Association, ESSA and others who have tirelessly worked for months getting this event together, and I urge our community to come out either Thursday or Saturday in support.
