“Loving Bowls” at the Sedona Arts Center
December 10th, 2016
There is something about a handcrafted bowl filled with chili that really puts me in the mood for the winter holidays. A bowl that represents art, love, warmth, gratitude and giving. A bowl that is so much more than what it appears. But where, where could I get such a bowl? Are you asking the same question? Well, I have the answer for you!
Every year since I have lived in the Verde Valley the Sedona Arts Center presents a community fundraiser called “Loving Bowls” in December. The event offers a large selection of over 1000 bowls created by local volunteer potters who have created bowls with a variety of glazes and artistic flare! These bowls can be purchased for only $10 each, and they come with chili, bread and yes dessert of course! So basically you get a very cool bowl, a meal and you get to do some good – the proceeds will benefit the Sedona Food Bank, the Sedona Community Center and the educational programs of the Sedona Arts Center.
New this year will be a wonderful collection of hand-made glass bowls, courtesy of their partner The Melting Point! The Arts Center has also added new twist: a limited edition of larger hand-made serving bowls perfect for family size tables and things like salad, pasta dishes, and large desserts.
Loving Bowls will be taking place this Saturday, December the 10th from 12:00 om – 3:00 pm at the historic Art Barn. The Sedona Arts Center and Ceramics Studio is located at the corner of State Route 89A and Art Barn Road at the north end of Uptown Sedona – on the right just before you enter Oak Creek Canyon.
