Plate Project stacked platesThe Plate Project is the heart of Clementine Porcelain.

The format is simple:
Tracy Shell & Jesse Ross cast, and bisque fire, functional porcelain plates then give them to children to paint or draw on. After a second firing, the finished pieces are sold through Clementine Porcelain's online store or at exhibitions. 100% of the net profit generated from the sale of the plates is donated to The Backpack Program administered by Food Bank of the Heartland.

The idea is to create a context in which kids can make a real contribution to alleviating childhood hunger in their very own community.


By combining education, outreach, direct community involvement, and fundraising, The Plate Project represents the purest expression of Clementine Porcelain's mission.

By purchasing a plate from our STORE you support Clementine Porcelain's mission and make a difference! 

Every plate sold in the Clementine Porcelain Store generates a $25 donation to The Backpack Program—it only takes $160 to send one needy child home with a backpack full of nutritious food for the entire school year!
