"Three Cups of Tea"; Seagrove Potters for Peace.

As promised here are pictures of the cups which will be for sale starting Saturday the 15th of August.
Items will be available exclusively at the shops until August 24, when any remaining vessels can be ordered by email or telephone.

These are juice, wine, tea cups by Mark
we plan to sell them in sets of 2.

These tumbler size cups are by me, Meredith, and will also be sold in sets of two.
All cups are signed on the bottom with Seagrove Potters for Peace.
Mark used SPFP since his cups were smaller.
A peace sign is drawn on each and is stamped with our logo stamp.
I added MH to mine.

The proceeds from the sales will be donated to

Mortenson, through his Central Asia Institute (CAI), has built hundreds of schools in remote areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan, where illiterate and impoverished children are prey to recruitment by terrorist organizations.
Mortenson, who many believe will be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, will be the NC State Convocation speaker on August 17.

I just finished his book about 3 weeks ago and was so inspired by what one person with a vision can accomplish. I think your Seagrove Potters for Peace is a wonderful idea. Do you concentrate on just one project always or do you pick from among many?

Sorry Meredith, I just answered my own question by reading further back in your blog. I need to add yours to my list because I usually jump here from Michael Kline's. I got a little teary eyed thinking about all that craftspeople do to help causes by making work and donating it, and wishing that Americans could be seen in that light by the rest of the world. And then I realized that others all over the world just wish to be seen that way too--as fellow human beings worthy of respect and tolerance. I hope your event is very successful.

Hey Meredith - Based on your earlier post, I ordered the book and then ordered another one for an artist friend. We may do an event down the line. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Thank you all for such great responses to our cups for the Three cups of Tea. I hope some of you will find a way to have your own going soon.
I too think potters and craftpersons are so giving.
The potters here give a lot to our local community.
I will let you know how the sales go..
