Last year I went down to Houston, Texas to work with Clark Kellogg. He had written two articles for us and I was there to do the photography (article 1: curved door with glass panes; article 2: shop made dovetail tools). I had a good time working with him. He’s young, does great work, and has a great sense of humor. Here’s another reason to like him: he has a social conscious. Clark is in the midst of a big project: Turn 100 bowls in 100 days. When he is done, the bowls will be sold at Empty Bowls Houston. (It seems that they sell a lot of artisan made bowls, each for a $25 donation to the Houston food bank.) Five other artisans, all ceramists, have taken up Clark’s challenge and are also making 100 bowls in 100 days (for a total of 600 bowls). I’ve included some photographs of some of Clark’s bowls, but you can check out more of them (and those of the ceramists) at the 100 bowls tumblr. It’s cool. I just wish I lived in Houston, so I could get one of Clark’s bowls.

Good for Clark Kellogg! The Empty Bowls is a charitable donation program sponsored by the American Association of Woodturners.Like the Houston version, the national program raises money to fight hunger. AAW members donate their works, which are then sold to raise the dough. Empty Bowls will be a prominent feature of this year's AAW Symposium, to be held in San Jose, California, on June 8 to 10.
