Dimensional Colors features original enamel art and many styles. Available products are: decorative light switch plate covers, decorative outlet covers, decorative tile and enamel pendants. The enameling is hand applied and fired by the artist. There are a wide range of styles shown, ranging from complex images, to less elaborate designs. The art has a hand painted look, but is achieved with powder enamels, not vitreous, or liquid form. After developing techniques for controlling the enamels; I achieve rich, lustrous colors. There are two main looks that I have for the art switch plates; one method uses all transparent color enamels; the other uses an opaque color enamel to start, both methods involve layering colors with kiln firing in between. By careful observation as to the effects of: firing time, temperature and color combinations, I have developed unique looks. When using all transparent enamels (shown right and below), the resulting colors sparkle with a crystal like look. When starting with an opaque base the result is a ceramic look. After the first opaque layer is fired, I layer multiple colors on top of each other in order to get brighter colors than with the transparents (shown on the About page). In addition to the visual, one can feel the ripples created by the design. I carry a wide selection of less complex styles (and less expensive) shown on the Styles page. The Styles page is meant to represent any switch plate cover size you may need, and can also be used to order tile.Enhance your surroundings with these distinctive, heirloom quality, decorative switch plates and tile; don't just use your switch plates, experience them. The light switch plate screws are enameled to blend in. I also offer custom switch plates and tile, as the colors are layered, most colors can be matched, or a suitable tone of the color can be created.
