Indian Lake High School ceramics students are helping prepare pieces for an upcoming charity event to feed the hungry. ILHS art teacher Erin Miller says four experienced art students volunteered to throw and glaze bowls at Buckeye Ceramics in Hilliard. Their creations will be sold at the Empty Bowls of Logan County Dinner on May 5 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Ohio Hi-Point Career Center. During the event, patrons purchase a handcrafted bowl made by students and area artisans for $15 and fill it with soup and bread from local restaurants, businesses and other participants.
Empty Bowls is series of dinners that raises money for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Clark, Champaign and Logan Counties, which distributes more than 6 million pounds of food a year to families locally.
Miller says during their visit, the students experienced a professional ceramics studio. In addition they toured the adjoining ceramics company Mayco, which manufactures many ceramics and glaze products that they use in the ILHS art classroom and ceramics workshop. Art students Michael Mallory, Amber Metz, Emma Cochenour, and Destiny Shinkle participated.
