Shake and Bake Switchplates

metalswitch-up2.jpg
I was walking through my neighborhood this weekend browsing a mostly unimpressive artists' fair and stumbled across a cute booth full of bright colored rectangles. A couple of local St Louis girls have founded MetalMorphosis, a company going after the nichiest of home decor markets: they're concentrating on cover plates for light switches. Sara Stewart and Kelly Robinson are offering unique little products for designers that are trying to accessorize every last part of a room.

Starting with a copper switch plate, the duo decorate and then kiln fire their plates for durable heirloom quality three by five inch pieces of functional artwork. Their methods include liquid enameling, dry sifting, etching, cloisonné wire, and grisaille. The company is a year and a half in, and they've done very well with private commissions and public showings.
