The Empty Bowl Project
Chili bowl sale set for Thursday
W 101313 EMPTY BOWL 08
Finally cool enough to handle after being fired at 2,300 degrees Fahrenheit, ceramic bowls are ready for the Empty Bowl Project sale on Thursday, Oct. 17. For only $10, patrons can purchase one of the over 400 one-of-a-kind bowls filled with chili at the Russell Union Rotunda on campus.
On the campus of Georgia Southern University this month, professor Jeff Schmuki’s ceramics studio has been a busy place. Production is full bore — hundreds of students and community members pounding, cutting and spinning clay in one room, some glazing finished products in another, while giant kilns fire in the background. At times, the studio has more closely resembled a factory than a classroom.
