Indian River Clay is a clay studio of full and part-time members founded in 2018 to promote the learning and development of pottery skills. We foster a community that inspires curiosity and discovery around the art and craft of clay, drawing together students, artists, and an engaged public. We believe that every person is an artist and that clay is a perfect medium through which to explore our talents. Every day in our studio we strive to deepen the connection between people and clay with the highest quality programs because we believe that shared creativity, so fundamental to humanity, is a critical force for good.
Samaritan Center Soup Bowl Event at Indian River Clay
We are excited to be participating in the Samaritan Center’s 27th Annual Soup Bowl fundraising event taking place on November 7. The Samaritan Center provides transitional housing for homeless families with dependent children in Indian River County. Handcrafted clay bowls will be created by volunteer potters and local chefs will prepare gallons of soup for the event. Indian River Clay is thrilled to be a part of this important fundraiser.
We have a lot of work to do until then and we need your help. Our plan is to create 300 wheel thrown and hand built bowls (which will generate $6000 for the Samaritan Center) at the Indian River Clay studio during the next few months. This will require a coordinated effort and of course your help. We need clay, glazes, kiln firings and volunteer assistants to make it happen.
Here’s how you can support our participation and be an important part of this community event. Be a community hero: A donation of $1000 can support the entire project! A donation of $600 will buy clay and glazes. A donation of $200 will buy the cost of kiln firing. $25 will buy a bag of clay. How many would you like?
We also need volunteers to prepare the clay and of course to make the bowls and organize the event at Indian River Clay on November 7, 2019. Please contact us at Indian River Clay with how you can help. Please help us support this important fundraiser for homeless families of Indian River County.
