Bowls for Empty Bowls 2018, Marietta, Ohio

The 2018 Empty Bowls Luncheon to support area food pantries will be held at the First Presbyterian Church in Marietta on April 7 from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM.  
Buy a bowl and you will get a variety of soups donated by area restaurants, breads and rolls donated by Panera Bread, beverages, and deserts supplied by the sponsoring churches.  Bowls are donated by area potters and woodworkers.  Here's a look at some of the bowls I have put aside for the event:

These jade green bowls are each  carved with a different design.

A bowl in a chawan tea bowl style.

More chawan bowls. I think I have at least four of each glaze.

A bit of oribe green glaze runs down the inside of the tenmoku bowls.


Outside of tenmoku bowl.

A couple of the larger bowls are for the silent auction part of the event.

A not-so-blue heron.  I'm O.K. with it, but often wish that glazes were like crayons or paint, so I could see, without testing, what happens with this or that combination of materials.  Most of the time it is best to test.  But so time consuming!

Also going on in Marietta same day is the First Settlement Festival .  Check the schedule- first performance starts at 1:00.  Have some soup then walk over and catch some live music.
