EMPTY BOWLS WITH THE NORTH TEXAS
Friday. February 22, 2002. 11:00am to 1:00pm
EMPTY BOWLS 2001 was such a success that the
North Texas Food Bank wants to have lunch with us again next year.
The Meyerson Symphony Hall has offered their lobby and music for
This year  your generous gifts raised almost $16,000 for the NTFB. The potters and woodturners donated about 600 bowls. You did a great job! Thank you very much.
The Food Bank expects a much larger turnout in 2002. We almost ran out of bowls last time, and we will need more bowls for the upcoming event. This early warning may give you time to set aside one special hour or class or week to make bowls for this special day.
This event gives us exposure to people we do not normally see at craft fairs and shows. It is a good opportunity to extend our audience. The Junior League provides the logistical support during the luncheon and outstanding local restaurants provide the food. Our only obligation is to provide the bowls. We will need all the help we can get.
Trinity Ceramics is happy to gather the bowls and deliver them to the Food Bank. We hope you will plan to help with EMPTY BOWLS 2002. Our goal is to deliver bowls by February 18. 2002.

While picking up some chemicals on Thursday, I got a copy of your Early Warning flier on the Empty
Bowls project. I am a furnace glass blower and information sharer (see web site above) and would like to
contribute something and spread the word if you are willing to do glass in addition to pottery and wood.
There are only a dozen or so glassblowers in North Texas, but I think several of them would be willing to
share. Since you say good opportunity to extend our audience, I assume there is a need for some kind
of name tag/card/identification to do this, plus some consideration as to size, so I would like to have
details for myself and before I put a mention on my site.
Thank you for your good work, I look forward to hearing from you.
