The Empty Bowls Project is a nationwide movement founded by potters. Together with Sarah Kersten, Emily Reinhardt, Helen Levi and with the organization of The Seed & Plate, we are on a mission to raise money for organizations that support the rights of women, minorities, refugees, undocumented immigrants, protestors, the environment…those who need protection now more than ever. The week of the presidential inauguration we gather. Potters across the country donate bowls, chefs and farmers donate food, you donate money and choose a beautiful handmade bowl to take home after using it to dine. We are stronger together.
