Hunger, handcrafted bowls, and soup

Empty Bowl Hawaii 2013

Mother Teresa said, “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then just feed one.”

Just a year ago, I started learning about ceramics and the pottery wheel. It’s incredibly rewarding to take a block of clay and turn it into a beautiful, finished piece, make with patience, determination, and creativity.

On Friday, April 26, you can join with local potters and neighborhood restaurants to add beauty to your lives and fight against hunger. Empty Bowl Hawaii 2013, presented by the Hawaii Potters’ Guild, will offer 5,000 hand-crafted bowls, donated by local artist groups like Ala Wai Arts and Crafts, Friends of Koko Head, and the Hawaii Potters’ Guild. Neighborhood restaurants like Big City Diner, Roy’s, and Side Street Inn are donating soup and bread.

The event starts at AlaMoanaCenter’s makai parking area (near Sears) at 6 pm. Purchase a hand-crafted bowl ($20 through advanced ticket sales, $25 on the night of the event), choose your soup from over 21 restaurants, and support Hawaii Meals on Wheels.

Remember that there are always Empty Bowls in the world. How full is your bowl? How can we help others fill their bowls and also their lives?
