This is the seventh year that I have had the privilege of painting a bowl for the Airdrie Food Bank Empty Bowls Festival that is held every September. Every year, this is definitely a highlight for me as, not only do I get to support such an amazing cause, I get to work alongside so many people I admire in the community. It's a real honour. In the past I painted a chair, a canoe, poplar trees, lilies, feathers, mountains and this year, roses. Each year I'm uncertain as to how the piece will look once fired as glazes aren't exactly my media, but I sure do love the process.
