Peace Project Ceramics: Harvest Table

7 - 8 October 2022

Friday, Oct 7, 12 pm - 7 pm

Saturday, Oct 8, 11 am - 5 pm

Paul Kotula Projects and Peace Project Ceramics are pleased to present a series of plates and platters celebrating community at this time of harvest.
Join us Friday, October 7 from 12 pm to 7 pm and Saturday, October 8 from 11 am to 5 pm for Peace Project Ceramics: Harvest Table. This cash-and- carry installation will evolve throughout the course of the exhibition; works are available on a first-come, first-choice basis.
Peace Project Ceramics was formed in 2003 by Jim Shrosbree, Professor of Art and Head of Ceramics at Maharishi International University in Fairfield, Iowa. Acting as primary designer for the project, Jim works with Mara Winningham, a potter with years of studio experience.
Significant to the work is the way it is produced. Prototypes, designed in the studio and used as models in making multiples, lead to new interpretations as the hand of the individual craftsperson comes out in the process of making.
Proceeds from Peace Project Ceramics sales support peace-creating groups and selected projects. In addition, Paul Kotula Projects will donate ten percent of its proceeds from sales to Gleaners Community Food Bank.
Founded in Detroit in 1977, Gleaners was among the first food banks in the United States. Today Gleaners provides food to more than 600 partner soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, and other agencies across southeast Michigan, and supplements efforts of those partners by offering direct service drive-up grocery and food box distributions. In its fiscal year 2021, Gleaners distributed a record-breaking 71.4 million pounds of food to neighbors in need. Every dollar donated provides three meals and 94 cents of every donated dollar goes to food and food programs. 
You may reach Gleaners directly to donate, volunteer or request assistance:
