This session of the radio show shares my conversation with members of the FHS Empty Bowls Club. Brenna Johnson, FHS ceramics teacher and club advisor. The students introduce themselves: Sydney Brady, Emma Owens, and Lauren Wilson. 

We had our conversation via virtual conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period. We talk about the nature of this event and making bowls for it. We find out that raku is a special clay firing process.
