Although 100 Bowls has no affiliation with the fabulous and inspiring Lark Books’ 500 Series, I think that the idea of making one bowl each day for one hundred days is very interesting and I’m looking forwards to seeing a new bowl in my inbox every day.
What, you ask, is “100 Bowls?” In a nutshell, 100 Bowls is a challenge concocted by Houston artists Renee LeBlanc and Clark Kellogg. The idea is for each artist to produce one hundred bowls over the course of one hundred days. The completed bowls will then be donated to Empty Bowls Houston, an annual event supporting the Houston Food Bank.
This year Empty Bowls will be held on May 26, 2012, at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. Artists participating in the Challenge include Steve Campbell, Clark Kellogg, Renee LeBlanc, and Mak Taing. Stay tuned for entries from these four brave gluttons for punishment as we count down towards May…

So far, the first three are of wood and of a very similar shape. Will the shapes evolve or morph? Will other mediums be used? What kind of experimentation will we see? We will only find out as each new day arrives.
