Nothing warms the heart like chili during the cold winter season, especially when accompanied by a hand-crafted bowl. At least that’s the opinion of several hundred residents who attend the Sedona Arts Center’s annual fundraiser, Loving Bowls, to be held at the SAC Saturday, Dec. 14, from 1 to 4 p.m.David Meyer, left, creates a bowl on the clay wheel with the help of instructor Dennis Ott on Tuesday, Dec. 10, in the Sedona Arts Center studio. On Saturday, Dec. 14, 1,200 bowls created by artists from the SAC, Verde Valley School and Yavapai College will be sold to benefit education programs at the SAC, the Sedona Community Food Bank and Sedona Community Center.

Loving Bowls, originally created by potter Ed Oshier and Denise Lapp at the Sedona Community Center over a dozen years ago, was set up as an outreach program and fundraiser to help improve the community. The program hit a four-year hiatus when Oshier and Lapp left the program but was taken up five years ago by the SAC and is now run by Dennis Ott, a ceramics teacher there.

Aside from the Plein Air Festival, Loving Bowls is one of SAC’s main fundraisers. Last year, the program served nearly 500 people in three hours, with 150 people lined up at the door before the event opened. At $10 a bowl, that’s a good chunk of change, but Ott believes the money isn’t everything.
