Silent Auction Highlight: Crazy Green Studios

Lori Theriault of Crazy Green Studios brought the idea of Feed Our Furry Friends!! to us last year after hearing about the Pet Food Assistance Program and how it connected with various agencies in the area to help keep families together by helping those in need make sure their animal companions continued to get the food they need. Her experiences with the Asheville Empty Bowls project and MANNA FoodBank (one of our partner agencies) have been valuable as we work our way through this inaugural event.

In addition to the pet food bowls that Lori has made and is donating for the event (more on how you can get one in a future post), she's donated more of her hand made pottery for our Silent Auction table:

these beautiful wheel-thrown tumblers are
made with non-toxic clay and glazes
and are dishwasher safe

About the artist, Lori Theriault:

When not tending to the furry friends at home or fostering for ACN, Lori makes functional and decorative pottery and tiles in her studio at Riverview Station in Asheville's River Arts District, and teaches private workshops at Bitterweet Studios at Bittersweet Cottage. Her work is available in Asheville at Grovewood Gallery at the Grove Park Inn, and downtown at Atelier 24 Lexington Gallery, Sensibilities Day Spa and at the French Broad Chocolate Lounge. You can see more of her work at her blog or on facebook. A technical glitch is currently preventing her from updating her website, but check it out as well as it will hopefully be back in play very soon.
