The fourth annual Potters’ Bowl took place at Featherstone Center for the Arts on Sunday, giving visitors a chance to purchase local, handmade bowls, and put them immediately to use by filling them with soup. For $30, guests received a bowl, soup, bread, a drink, and dessert.

The event took place in coordination with the opening reception of The Art of Ceramics, a pottery and sculpture exhibit curated by Island artist Washington Ledesma. The exhibit will be on display through September 11.
