 This year we are looking for: bowls, cups and mugs, dinnerware place settings, pet bowls, and Silent and Live Auction items.

Dinnerware Place Settings: We will have a table set up with beautifully decorated different place settings for a silent auction again this year. The place setting could be wheel thrown, hand-built, slip-cast or bisque ware bought and hand decorated. The typical place setting includes a dinner plate, salad plate, soup bowl, and a drinking vessel. This way every mode of ceramics can be represented.

Cups and Mugs: There will be a separate table to sell cups and mugs, tumblers, goblets, chalices, tea bowls and other drinking vessels.

Bowls: The bowls generally range from 4-6 inches in height and 5-8 inches in diameter. They can be high, medium or low fire work, hand built or wheel thrown. If you are planning to donate bowls for the Empty Bowls Benefit, please fill out the pledge card below. This will facilitate in the planning. If you use your own clay (a 2 lb. Bowl), your own glazes and fire in your own kiln, you are also eligible to receive a tax receipt from Las Vegas Catholic Worker in the suggested amount of $3 per bowl. To do so, turn your bowls into Donna Potter, receive a receipt, and then contact Gary Cavalier of LVCW, who will be available during the EB event at the Green Valley High School cafeteria.

Pet Bowls: The pet bowls will be part of the general bowl table. They can be decorated to represent the intended pet. All sizes are  acceptable.

Silent and Live Auctions: Members can donate one of a kind pieces of pottery for the silent and live auctions. Anything handmade is acceptable.

            Please bring auctions items to Green Valley High School by 9:30 am on the morning of the event. It would be greatly appreciated, if you can deliver bowls or make arrangements for pick-up or delivery of bowls (or any of the other donations) by the end of February with Donna Potter.
