Empty Bowls

I hang out with a group of talented artists called the Bureau of Drawers. It's a Seattle based drawing group that hang out at a local watering hole called the Cafe Racer. Recently we all help paint unfired clay bowls for the Seattle chapter of Empty Bowls. Here's their mission statement:
Potters and other craftspeople, educators and others work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. Guests are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for a cash donation, guests are asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity.

Below are two of the bowls I painted. Check out their Facebook page for more photos! Empty Bowls will be holding an auction of the bowls on February 27th at the Ballard Community Center.
