Potters work the mud for hunger
Thursday, November 15, 2007

Several members of the SUNY Fredonia university enjoy “working the mud” as members of the Fredonia Potter’s Co-op. This year, they have donated their time and materials to create hundreds of one-of-a-kind ceramic bowls, which will be sold as part of “Empty Bowls” - a fundraiser benefitting the Chautauqua County Rural Ministry’s Friendly Kitchen.
The benefit, which is described as, “buy a bowl, get a free lunch,” will be held on Saturday, Dec. 1, from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. at St. John’s United Church of Christ at 733 Central Ave., Dunkirk. Adult-sized bowls and portions will be available for a contribution of $20, and smaller, child-sized bowls for $10, to be filled with delicious soup prepared by a local caterer, “For Your Pleasure.” 

This begins a new community tradition by the Fredonia Potter’s Co-op. There will be no pottery sale on campus this December, as has been the practice in the past.  Instead, the co-op will host a pottery sale at Professor Emeritus Marvin Bjurlin’s studio at 25 Maple Ave., Fredonia, on Friday, Dec. 14, Saturday, Dec. 15 and Sunday, Dec. 16, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
