About

Making Switchplate Art

Hi! I'm Lora, and my shop is SerraCraft. I've been making art in one form or another since I could hold a pencil. I spend a lot of time in my studio these days painting and drawing, but here at the shop I primarily sell art switch plates. I see these small gems as unique functional art pieces for the home.

I enjoy collecting and displaying art in my home, whether it is my own work, or works of other artists. I started making art switch plates when I ran out of wall space in my home for more artwork. I loved the process and learning about the fascinating back stories on images used in my creations. And so it grew into artisan business at SerraCraft.

I love finding unique images for the light switch plates, and have created plates in many styles and from many eras,from prehistory to the present. I may have a specific theme in mind when I start my search for the image I will use, or start off with a specific blank plate that I want to create on, and then I go exploring online.

Or I may start by looking for inspiration in my image collection on Pinterest. [Looking at pictures is one of my favorite things to do, so I am a natural born Pinterest junkie. Visit me on Pinterest at: www.pinterest.com/SerraArtCraft].

I may use the images I find as is, or use the image to create altered art or as part of mixed media work, or as inspiration for a painting.

I work with heavyweight, substantial metal plate bases. I see the plate base as the frame for the art image. Once the image has been finalized it is digitally sized to the plate base frame and printed on archival paper. I waterproof the image, then mount it onto the plate base and seal it in poured resin.

I also love to share the story of the image in the plate description, so the plate you purchase becomes a conversation piece in your home.

I hope you enjoy browsing in the shop!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Customization of Switch plate configurations:

The switch plates in your home may differ from the item shown. For example: you may see a design in double toggle, and need single toggle. Or you see a design in a rocker plate and need toggle plate.

Many of the switch plate designs can be made in different plate configurations. Please contact me and I will let you know if your preferred design can be made in the plate size you need.

Where customization of the plate configuration is feasible, I will also put together a draft image of how the plate would look, for your approval, prior to purchase, and add a variation to the listing so you can complete your purchase, should you approve the design.
