- 15th Annual Empty Bowls event in October
In lieu of hosting an in-person 15th Annual Empty Bowls event in October, the Guild will be selling bowls at the Troy Waterfront Farmers Market in October to raise funds to support Troy food pantries. Fellow potters, that’s your cue to make bowls. And spread the news to all your friends and family members to mark October 3, 10 and 17 on their calendars so they don’t miss the opportunity to support the cause and bring home a beautiful handmade bowl. The Empty Bowls committee is still exploring other avenues to continue our commitment to address food insecurity. Got an idea? Please let us know. We’ll keep you posted with details as they become available. In the meantime, get those wheels spinning and slab rollers rolling and make some bowls!Thank you! And thanks, too, to the Empty Bowls Committee for being creative and persistent and caring.
- Help needed for the Hopi Nation (posted 6/26/20)
Guild member Sharon Miller is requesting donations to ease the burdens that COVID-19 has placed on the Hopi Nation. As many of you likely know, COVID-19 has had a disproportionate impact on people of color and hardest hit among them is the Navajo Nation which is adjacent to the Hopi Nation in the American Southwest. Sharon’s friend, Derrick, is a potter who lives on the Hopi reservation and his people are in need of the following supplies: masks, disposable gloves (latex/nitrile/vinyl), hand sanitizer, toilet paper, tampons, deodorant, soap, and shampoo. They also need potable water. If you can help, please contact Sharon at email@example.com.Here’s a photo of Derrick and some of his work.
