What is the Plate Project?
Every year dozens of Alaskan artists create unique art plates for Bunnell’s Plate Project. The bisqued plates are blank “canvases” for brilliant food-safe underglazes. The finished painted plates are then competitively selected by new and renewing members when they make a donation at a $125+ or higher, each year. Members look forward to collecting annual plates that commemorate their support for Bunnell Street Arts Center.
The plate project would not be possible without the time and talent of Homer potters who transform hundreds of pounds of clay into about 100 plates each year. The painters are artists, community members and Bunnell supporters. With all materials provided, painters use the hand built plates in collaboration to create a plate design. If you’d like to get involved for the first time, staff and volunteers will gladly offer you tips and techniques to create a successful plate.
