May 21st 2009. What a disaster.
An explosion in the bisque kiln
- April 2009. Bowls ready for glazing.
For the Multiple Sclerosis and Thompson Valley Potters Guild Charity Bowls Fundraiser.
Shelves loaded for a sale
Every year at Art Market in Calgary, Bruce sits in the foyer and throws bowls for the Airdrie Food Bank.
His goal is 400 and he almost always makes that target in the 4 days of the show.
The bowls are then glazed by local groups and fired by Greg McRitchie, a local potter. Greg's wife Lori is the manager of the Airdrie Food Bank.
The bowls are sold at an annual celebration, where Airdrie restaurants donate food and local entertainers donate their time.
In 2015, Greg had a problem with his kiln, so Bruce stepped up and together we glazed and fired the pots.
Below are some of the results.

Oops, out of Honey Pots, and pretty low on everything else.
A really good show.
