On Thursday, March 18, members of the Cariboo Potters Guild unloaded more bowls from the kiln at the Central Cariboo Arts Centre.

A collaboration with the Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society, the new bowls will be delivered to The Bean Counter Bistro & Coffee and Mint and Lime Catering.

Guild member Buff Carnes said the enthusiasm of the CCCS is greatly appreciated.

“This event gives guild members an incentive to create, bring us together with a focus and contribute to our community,” Barnes said, noting there will be more new bowls for the fundraiser next week as well.

Barnes said the guild would also like to acknowledge the support of the city of Williams Lake and the Cariboo Regional District who awareded a Central Cariboo Arts and Culture grant toward the purchase toward a new digital kiln.

A minimum of $20 is suggested per bowl.
