For a great cause

One of Robin's teapots recently went up for auction on a website honoring our very dear friend Tom Rohr who passed away suddenly last summer. Check it out. The website is an online exhibition and auction to raise money for the Tom Rohr Memorial Scholarship fund. It'll be up and running from now until March 11th, and one of several fundraising events planned for this year.

Another event will be a second auction later in the year, which will include some of Tom's work. Robin plans to participate in a wood firing in Saskatchewan in May with fellow potter and friend of Tom's, Martin Tagseth, which will hopefully result in some great pieces to be donated to this event as well.

As the website says, Tom gave to so many through his friendship, his teaching and his art. All the work has been donated by artists who in someway experienced Tom's presence in their lives. If you are in need of a teapot, here's an opportunity to buy one - for a good cause, remembering a great man.
