Doing our part
It's that time of year again. The Second Harvest Food Bank is having their Empty Bowls event next week. I think this is the third year that we agreed to make 50 bowls for them. They pay us $5 a bowl, which probably pays for materials and firing, we donate our time and energy.
Jeff threw all the bowls, since he can throw a nice soup bowl that doesn't need trimming... thanks to his many years of production work. My contribution was prepping for bisque, waxing bottoms, and dipping into the base glaze.
Jeff did the all of the glaze trailing. Half are "nuka" glaze with blue and green trailing, the other half are shino with copper red. We were really happy that we had a bright sunny day to work outside.
Tomorrow is firing day. I hope to get some photos of all the bowls before they get picked up by volunteers this weekend.
Stay tuned for updates!
