Ceramics for Supper was a one-night event in Wellington, a celebration of the work of Aotearoa ceramicists, good company and good food. It was a communal vegetarian dinner designed by a local chef, using local ingredients. This event raised $2900 which was donated to Women’s Refuge.
The concept is simple: choose a ceramic bowl/plate on arrival, enjoy a meal served in it, and take it home with you at the end of the night.
Ceramics for Supper was organised by three friends, Abby Cunnane, Carmel Rowden and Heather Hayward. Each of the bowls/plates, and the chef’s time, have been generously donated in tautoko of Women’s Refuge. This is a not for profit event.
Ceramics for Supper came out of a conversation inspired by New York potter Helen Levi’s #pottersinprotest series. In the context of Aotearoa, where we are lucky to know a wide community of friends who make ceramics, we were energised to host a sister series. Ceramics for Supper is intended to celebrate the work of these talented people, and to give something towards local not for profit organisations that provide justice and support to those who need it. We are indebted to the giant generosity of many in making this possible, most particularly the thirty-something potters we approached to donate.
