On April 30th, 2010, Sterling College hosted an Empty Bowls event to raise both hunger awareness and funds to help prevent hunger in our state. Sterling raised nearly $1000 for the VT Foodbank! Heather Stearns of Muddy Creek Pottery has also pledged to send additional funds to the Foodbank, bringing the total to nearly $1500.
On April 11th, Sterling volunteers made 90 clay bowls! Hooray! Thanks to Heather Sterns for her extraordinary generosity, guidance, and the use of her studio, and to all of the Sterling folks who took time out of their Sundays to make bowls. Below are some of Heather’s photos:
