Limited-Edition Artist's Plates

FinalGroupShot-620x429

Wrote Rima Suqi in Thursday's New York Times Home section, "'A friend of mine was visiting and her son broke a plate,' Edwina von Gal recalled. But it wasn't just any plate; it was a no-longer-available limited-edition one by the late Dan Flavin. Ms. von Gal is best known as a designer of gardens and outdoor spaces. Less than a year after this sad episode, she also became a plate maker. She chose six artists she knew 'well enough to call up and ask' to design 'something that would look good in a circle, that could be cropped round.' Teresita Fernández, April Gornik, Mary Heilmann, Maya Lin, Richard Prince and Ed Ruscha (below) all said yes, and Lenox agreed to produce an edition of 500 sets."

The verso of each plate is marked with Azuero Earth Project's logo, the name of the artist, and 2012 (the year of the edition).

Set of six 11-inch-diameter bone china plates: $750.
