Bowl Turners, Time for the Reunion!

Time for the 100 Bowls Project Reunion!

The project we started over a year ago is entering the home stretch.  All but a few of the 100 bowls have been turned, with only a few blanks and some small branches left.

We’ve set a date for the show/reunion/party and hope that you and your bowls will be in attendance.

About The Event.

The event, called How Many Bowls?, will take place over two days, November 19th and 20th at the Schiavone Gallery in Baltimore (just a few blocks from the shop in Highlandtown).  Mark & I visited the gallery last week and the space is beautiful!  There will be plenty of room to display the bowls and to project a slide show with photos of the original tree and of the bowls being turned.  Dan & Liz, who run the gallery, are excited about the show and our artist-friend, Kini Collins (also one of the 100 bowl turners) has offered to help us arrange the show and attract some attention in the art community.  The exhibit will be in place for 2 days, November 19th & 20th, with some opportunities for early viewing the week before.

On Saturday, November 19th we’ll turn the 100th bowl right in the gallery (we’ll be taking a lathe over) and have a celebration to honor the turners (there are 38 of you).  The event will be from 1-4 pm and will be open to the public, so please plan to attend and bring your fan clubs.

On Sunday, November 20th the gallery will be open again from 1-4 pm.  Mark will demonstrate bowl turning (he’ll be making small bowls from some of the smaller pieces) and the 100 bowls will again be on display.  If you can’t make Saturday, hope you can make Sunday, even better if you can come both days.
