A Soup(er) Event this Friday, January 8

2016 Bowls

What a wonderful Democrat & Chronicle article on Hungerford neighbor Sabra Wood’s annual event!

Cat Clay studio is hosting Winter Warmth, a Soup(er) Benefit Friday, Jan. 8.

Donating money to good causes is nice, says Cat Clay owner/artist Sabra Wood. “But it’s not very rewarding, so I love getting personally involved.”

That’s why she started Sample Soap, a nonprofit that collects personal care items and distributes them to the neediest groups in Rochester.

It’s also why she launched Winter Warmth, a Soup(er) Benefit. The event is held every January in Wood’s Hungerford Building studio, and 100 percent of the proceeds go to Healthy Sisters Soup & Bean Works, a nonprofit that helps women in recovery.

“Let’s face it, January is a dead month,” she says. “This is a wonderful way to pause, take stock and kick of the New Year.”

For $20, guests get ceramic bowls handcrafted and donated by local artists — including Wood, Richard Aerni, Carolyn Dilcher-Stutz (whose work is pictured) and Juliana Drumheller, among others — packages of soup mix from Healthy Sisters, and appetizers and desserts to graze on.

Winter Warmth runs from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 8, in Suite 242 of the Hungerford Building, 1115 E. Main St. (door 2 by the loading docks). Parking is available at the Hungerford, but don’t park in front of Happy Feet, which is a tow-away zone. Parking also is available at Visions Credit Union across Main Street and at Greenovation.

Last year, 120 bowls were sold at the event, and at least that many will be available this year, Wood says.

There's a sweet story about these bowls for the soup benefit. A friend found them on the side of the road and brought them to me! I ran tests and discovered they take an image very nicely at 1900 degrees. So now they'll make money for Healthy Sisters.

Transcending Schisms

Gayle Erwin
This one is one of the larger ones I’ve made in clay. I love, love, love the way the glaze breaks. If you’re not sure what that means… it’s all one glaze. When a potter asks about how a glaze breaks, it means how it transitions over change in the surface texture.

Transcending Schisms
Hamsa-inspired ceramics by Gayle Erwin

Opening & closing party
Friday, June 6th
5 – 9 pm

Gayle has been working with clay for over 20 years. She teaches workshops at the Genesee Pottery and also has her studio space there.

How much does Gayle love working in clay? Well, she is always having more fun at the studio than at her day job, which is not surprising. However, she also would rather clean the studio than her kitchen – and clay studios get VERY dirty!

Gayle will be sharing her hamsa collection at Cat Clay. Why hamsa? In addition to its beauty, it truly does transcend schisms: this ancient symbol is part of several world religions, including Buddhism, Christianity, Islam and Judaism. Gayle’s collection started when she found her first hamsa while surfing the web. This unplanned discovery was the start of an obsession with the form. Gayle continued to explore and refine this amazing symbol over the past several years. We are truly happy to show this body of work.
