Hi Everyone -
Well, finally I can come up for some air!
100 Bowls of Compassion was held last Thursday, May 5th at the World
Bank and brought in $182,000 for Miriam's Kitchen. It was our fourth
year, and we keep bringing in more money this year. What I found most
heartening about this year's event is that individual ticket sales were
way up - and at $225 a piece, that's quite something. Lest there be any
doubt, pottery can be the centerpiece of high end events!
Many, many thanks to this community for helping me start this event four
years ago, and for continuing to support it. This year, a bowl given by
David McBeth was our "Corporate Bowl of Compassion," given to Bailey Law
Firm for their support over the past year. A small bowl by Russel Fouts
went for over $250; a basket of five small bowls (two from Alisa in
Denmark - one she gave me, one I found in the Clayart room after NCECA!
- one from Joyce that she sent as a test piece to me two years ago, a
tiny bowl from David McBeth, and one of my small bowls) went for $150.

Beth Kendall's pieces, Lisa Skeen's bowls, Karin Abromaitis, Russel, and
The pics aren't great and unfortunately my batteries died before I could
get all the Clayart bowls photographed. If I have your name wrong on
the picture, please please let me know and I'll change it - I did it
from memory the day after the event and I was wiped out!
I don't have the info yet on what individual pieces went for (except for
those I mentioned above) but will be glad to look it up and report it to
you if you're interested.

I looked eagerly for your pictures, but you must have been VERY wiped out
when you posted. Those "bowls" aren't going to hold much compassion, I'm
Better check that link and give us another.
By the by, I kinda like the color "ash,blackbird,3195" but it runs too much.
