A Year in Benefit Bowls

Frank Goryl of Moscow Clayworks in Moscow, Pennsylvania made A Year in Benefit Bowls...

Why did you decide to do this project? Attended a Lackawanna County Arts breakfast where Noah was featured speaker. In the spirit of artist Noah Scalin’s Skull-A-Day project, a benefit bowl was created for each day of 2012. A different clay body and glaze was used each month. MCW’s began creating benefit bowls for our Inaugural Spring 2010 exhibit to benefit the earthquake victims in Haiti. Over the past few years we have raised several thousand dollars for local and global projects. Proceeds of the $15 for each bowl: 1. North Pocono Cultural Society’s Art Scholarships  2. MCW’s Haitian Project 3. The Pathway to Peace High School Meditation Project.

How has doing a yearlong/daily project affected your life? This project brought some closure to four years of making Benefit Bowls.
