EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The University of Evansville’s Department of Art and Clay Club held its annual Chili Bowl Sale on the East Terrace Lawn on Thursday.

There were 500 different bowls, ranging in size from small to large, with the option to add chili to them.

The bowls were created by members of the Clay Club, faculty, alumni and local Evansville residents.

UE professor Chris Hochwender made about 100 bowls for the sale this year. He’s created more than 1,000 over the past eight years.

“Getting through pottery is a really wonderful experience, and it’s a place to center my mind and myself,” Hochwender said. “It’s also such a treat to through pottery, that then raises money to feed people who are having constraints right now.”

Proceeds from the event will go be donated to a local food pantry and the Clay Club.
