A message from Josephine County Empty Bowls chair, Heidi Griffiths:

I want to share what we’ve been doing to generate community interest in Empty Bowls Josephine County. I was granted a generous donation of clay from Georgies in Portland towards the EMPTY BOWL PROJECT and held a THROW A THON at RCC. Continuing Ed. Students and fellow CLAYFOLK members participated in generating 60 bowls and several Silent Auction pieces from the Hand Builders. I know the handbuilders felt great to be a part of the effort without having to be behind the wheel!

A big thank you to: all those that came to the THROW A THON for their time and beautiful work donated; Ellen Johnson, from OPTIONS, lunch was great and we appreciate the tickets to the event; Georgie’s, for the clay and continued support to the Pottery Community; and A HUGE Thank You to Phil Fishwick and RCC through whom the THROW A THON was made possible! Lastly, there are less than 6 weeks left to receive your donations to go towards this year’s event.

Many thanks to all of the potters who attended the recent RCC Throw-a-thon in preparation for the Oct. 12th Josephine County Empty Bowls event.
