Empty Bowls

While you are particpating in Safe Halloween at Murdale Shopping Center on Nov. 1:

The Neighborhood Co-op Grocery and the SIU Ceramics Program are joining to create an event to give back to the community. Empty Bowls are “art for your table” and “food for the community.”  The sales of the bowls will be donated to the Good Samaritan House of Carbondale.
Empty Bowls takes place on Saturday, November 1, 2014 at the Neighborhood Co-op Grocery. 

The hand made bowls are being crafted by students and faculty at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
Pattie Chalmers, Associate Professor of Ceramics at the School of Art and Design states:

“My idea with this project is to combine a lesson in community participation with a lesson about the hand made objects and most importantly give a little assistance to individuals in need.”

The Co-op will fill the bowls with one of our delicious soups. The soup can be enjoyed on site in our community room.  A family friendly event, everyone is welcome!
