And now for something completely different....Pottery!
Pictured here is the bowl I painted for Alexandria High School's Empty Bowls Fundraiser, held recently. The bowl was made by Ann Donovan of Dragonfly Pottery, just down the road from our camp. After the bowl was bisque fired I painted the designs using brightly colored underglazes. I didn't get to see the bowl after it was glaze fired, but I did hear that the bowl is now on it's way to Arizona with an air traffic controller and that the high school raised about $3000 for the "Backpack Club". The Backpack Club was organized to help combat hunger in the North Country.
