Saint Xavier Clay Club Art Pieces to Benefit Local Charities
Saint Xavier High School’s Clay Club handcrafted more than 100 pottery bowls for the annual Empty Bowls project.
“I had a quiet goal in mind of one day sending 100 pieces. Well this year, they blew it out of the water with a whopping 120 finished works for Empty Bowls. I couldn't be more proud of the men, as they worked on producing and finishing the works in our after-school Clay Club program,” said Kevin Payne, St. X art teacher and Clay Club moderator.
The 21st annual Empty Bowls fundraiser was held Thursday, October 12th at Bellarmine University. Attendees had the opportunity to purchase handcrafted bowls, bid on silent auction baskets and enjoy meals from local chefs. All proceeds were donated to feed the local hungry.
Kevin said he tells the students on the first day of Clay Club, "Before you can receive, you have to first give. This is your chance to give back to the community through your God-given talents."
