Local artisans contribute their time and talent to create ceramic bowls for the Empty Bowls fundraising event.

Robin Reynolds, DSU ceramics instructor, organizes Empty Bowls each year. Last year, the event raised more than $4,000 for local food pantries. For the event, local artisians contributed their time and resources to create one-of-a-kind, handcrafted ceramic bowls for the event. Special thanks for Sponsor bowls: Julie Schuster, Sarah Snavely, Caitlin Freidt, and Tod Winter.
