St. George ‘pot throw’ draws artists of all ages ahead of fundraiser

The annual Community Pot Throw put on by the St. George Art Museum and the St. George Recreation Center brought in artists of all ages.  

The event has been held annually since 1995, with anyone allowed to participate regardless of age or experience level, said Jen Bell, the pottery instructor at the St. George Recreation Center. Those who participate create items that could be sold at the upcoming “Soup N’ Bowl,” a March fundraiser for the St. George Art Museum.

The handmade bowls make good products for the fundraiser, which tends to draw a crowd with its live entertainment, classic car show, and food available for those who buy tickets.

City of St. George employees said they used the pot throw as a team bonding experience and rotated groups throughout the day. 

“I just love seeing people come in who have never thrown a pot before,” said Natalie Gula, St. George Art Museum administrator.

The pottery makes for an interesting set of items at the Soup N’ Bowl, where pots made by beginners, professionals and everyone in between are up for sale.

“It’s just fun to see that variety,” Gula said. 

The Soup N’ Bowl is slated for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, March 4 at the Art Museum, which is located at 47 E. 200 North in St. George. Tickets are $20 per person and each ticket nets the buyer a bowl from the pot throw as well as lunch. Tickets can be purchased at the door or ahead of time online at www.sgcity.org/artmuseum/soupnbowl.
