Since the late 90s, plates have been part of Art Auction, with a dozen plate artists participating every year. In the beginning, each artist worked alone on her plate, in April Frost’s Hand On! studio.. Then, beginning in 2000, a studio day was established: everyone would work on her plate at the same time, and lunch would be served. This past year, April closed her studio, but decided that the tradition should continue, so she opened her home to the plate artists for a home studio day.

Unlike other works of art, creating plates is not a what-you-see-is-what-you-get proposition. The colors change dramatically when the plates are fired, and artists need to take these changes into account when creating their designs.

The finished plates have become a regular and popular feature at the Art Auction, and selling prices have ranged from $25 to $200 per plate.
