It takes a great number of dedicated volunteers to make an Empty Bowls Project possible. And one thing is clear: this Empty Bowls Project would not be possible without the commitment, organization, and artistic vision of our bowl-glazing leadership team of Liz Egan and Melissa Ryan. For many months, Liz and Melissa have imagined, designed, and prepared bowl-glazing sessions for hundreds of artists. At each session, they have made guests feel welcome and inspired. Throughout the process, they have believed strongly in the goal of addressing issues of food insecurity through creative work. Now that the final glazing session is finished, they will continue to fire, photograph, and catalog bowls as we prepare for the Empty Bowls dinner in January. So it seems fitting this week to take a moment to offer a special thanks to Liz and Melissa. And we know they would like us to also thank the strong crew of parents, faculty, and students who have top-glazed bowls, washed brushes, and assisted guests along the way. We can't wait to see all of the bowls set out for guests next month, and even better, we can't wait to see the bowls full of soup at our dinner. Thank you!
