THOMASVILLE, Ga. -- A local artist is using pottery to put an end to poverty. Caprice Bowman with the Thomasville Center for The Arts, Artists in Residence Program, has sculpted and painted more than 100 bowls. It's for a project called 'Empty Bowls’. Each bowl was handcrafted, some even have poems written by another artist, Jay Snodgrass.

The Center explained that the project is a way to raise awareness and money for the growing problem of hunger worldwide.

"It feels wonderful to make all of these wonderful bowls and give them a home, where I know people are going to love them and also give money to other people," Bowman said.

A portion of the sales from Empty Bowls will go to the Thomas County Food Bank. The exhibit will be up through October 16th.
