Soup is Love Update

Soup is Love Project – Four-month report



We are four months into the Soup is Love Project. More than 30 people participated in the project launch which was held in conjunction with Albuquerque’s citywide Women and Creativity. It was great because we met many of our neighbors, some who came back with their kids or grandkids.  We’ve had another 30 from our Soup is Love MeetUp. Altogether, we have made more than 200 bowls!

We have a core group who return regularly. They have been a great help to the new people from the MeetUp group or Facebook followers who we get every time we’ve held an open studio. We owe a HUUUGE thank you to the professional potters who’ve volunteered time and materials to make this project a success. They have helped the quality of the bowls improve over time.

Author: Vicki Bolen, Little Bird de Papel

I am a paper artist living and creating in Albuquerque, NM. Working with paper to create art gives me an appreciation for the beauty and cultural significance of this versatile material. I began by folding origami cranes, and over the years my work has evolved to include handmade greeting cards, book making, boxes and mono prints. Each piece gives me the opportunity to create something useful while expressing myself artistically. I attend numerous art and crafts festivals throughout the country because my intent is to share the joy I experience in making art. My artwork is also available through my Etsy and Redbubble shops.
