One of Seattle’s most unique, delightful summer parties is this Thursday, August 14. Pottery Northwest‘s annual Salad Bowl ditches the usual banquet salmon and chicken options and presents a bounty of delicious salads, which guests pile on unique bowls made by members of the school—and yes, the bowl goes home with you at the end of the night. The party is more relaxed than your usual gala fundraiser, as one can mingle and chat with artists-in-residence and other guests as one pleases.

There is also a carefully edited selection of art for the silent auction, while the live auction offers an array of beautiful, one-of-a-kind platters made by noted Pacific Northwest artists, some of whom are not typically ceramicists, including oil painter Meg Holgate and printmaker Barbara Robertson. Each artist creates a platter reflecting their own style, a truly unique object for art lovers and collectors. This year includes some of the region’s most celebrated ceramicists, Jeffry Mitchell, Patti Warashina and guest of honor Akio Takamori.

The proceeds of the event help fund Pottery Northwest’s events and programs throughout the year, including their artist residencies. If you love a great summer party, this one is not to be missed.
