Empty Bowls Decal Workshop

This afternoon I led a ceramic decal workshop at the Winchester Thurston School in Pittsburgh. Organized by Mary Martin, I was one of four visiting ceramic artists working to help community members produce functional pieces for Pittsburgh's annual Empty Bowls dinner.


I created about 24 sheets of decals using Adobe Photoshop and images found online. Participants in the workshop, who ranged from grade school to senior citizens, applied them to pre-made pottery. I encouraged them to be creative with the decals, and I was truly impressed at the level of ingenuity they displayed.
