Be sure to mark your calendars for the upcoming 4th annual Empty Bowl Hawai'i 2015 on April 11th!
6-9pm / 445 + 449 Cooke Street and Agora in Kaka'ako
A co-worker of mine has been involved in making pottery for the last several years (something I have been wanting to do since FOREVER, but that's another story). The other day, she was telling me about her involvement in an event that's being put on by the Hawai'i Potters' Guild along with artists from The Honolulu Museum of Art School, University of Hawaii at Manoa, Windward Community College, Hickam Air Force Base, Iolani Potters, Leeward Community College, Makua Alii Potters and high school students from Mid-Pacific Institute and Punahou School.
The Empty Bowl Project is a grassroots effort that started in the 90's in Michigan and has grown in the U.S. and internationally to fight hunger.
Great concept...potters make and donate beautiful ceramic bowls to this awesome event. Participating local restaurants such as Cocina, Mariposa, Big City Diner, Café Laufer, Le Bistro, Murphy's Bar & Grill, Roy's Restaurants, Side Street Inn, Tiki's Grill & Bar, Town, and 12th Avenue Grill will entice you with a serving of scrumptious soups from their renown restaurants. There will be beverages for sale, and the sounds of The Fresh Preps band as well as Blue Grass Bands will provide the event a festive flair. Sounds like a great event dontcha think?
You can get your advance tickets for $20 at emptybowlhawaii.org or purchase a ticket on the day of the event for a $25 contribution. Enjoy a simple meal of soup, bread and take home a beautiful handmade bowl of your choice! This event is presented by the Hawai'i Potters' Guild and is a benefit for Hawai'i Meals on Wheels.
Below is a sneak peak of the beautiful bowls that my co-worker will be contributing to the event! I can't wait to see all of the bowls that will be there!!! Get your tickets now!
