This last weekend we went to the first annual local Hartsfest. We got to play in some clay!
The Merced County Community Action Agency (boy that's a mouthful!) had a little set-up where you could form and decorate a bowl.
These bowls will then be fired, glazed, fired again and turn out looking oh so pretty!

Rhonda Lowe of the MCCAA explains it this way:
The Empty Bowl dinner will be Nov. 3rd at 5:30 pm at the Atwater
Community Center. It will be $20.00 and you will get to choose your bowl
which will then be filled with soup and served with warm bread to

If you would like more information or to see other photos go to Facebook and friend the MCCAA at merced caa.

I am hoping I can find my bowl or Madison's to purchase...but as you can see in the top photo - all the bowls are awfully nice!
So, if you are looking for a great way to combine art and giving to others head to Atwater Community Center on November 3rd and find a bowl to purchase!
And thank you to my Madison for more of her wonderful photos.
Don't forget to mark your calendar...go on... go and do it right now or if you are like me you won't remember!
