Blue Mesh Talavera Ceramic Outlet Switch Plate
Blue Mesh Talavera Ceramic Outlet Switch Plateby Fine Crafts & Imports(1)
Mexican Talavera ceramic is the result of a mixture of cultures over time. Initially, the Spaniards were influenced by Arabic pottery.They brought it with them to Mexico.The mixture of these cultures resulted in this beautiful ceramic art. This ceramic outlet switch plate is a great present-time example of the exquisite beauty Mexican craftsmen put into each item they create. The ceramic is fired at high temperatures to give it its hardness.Most of the Talavera ceramic items are first hand-painted with a white coat.The decoration is then drawn over the first coat of paint. You may find that it has some imperfections, due to its hand-made nature, but it is what makes it all the more unique. Because the switch plate is handcrafted and hand-painted, no two switch plates are the same! There may be small variations in size, weight and even the colors. This switch plate makes for a unique accent to any hacienda, country, or southwestern style home. This particular design is painted in colorful strokes with a blue background.This switch plate will go well with the Rebozo Talavera Ceramic Sink.It will fit any standard two outlet switch plate.If you want to delight somebody special with a unique handcrafted gift, this is what you are looking for!

The finishing touches to any room are like the cherry on top of a sundae — small in size compared to the rest of the space, but dramatic in effect and impact. It’s the switch plates and outlet covers that tend to receive the most personal contact while in a space, whether you notice them or not. Every time you walk in or out of a room or need to plug something in, your hand and eyes are drawn closer to these wall plates than many other features in the room. Why not choose something to cover your outlets worth looking at?

Do my outlet covers need to match the finishes in my room?

When choosing your switch plates and outlet covers, don’t feel like you need to limit yourself only to the finishes that you have used throughout your house already. Consistency and care are important, but so is personal expression. It’s not necessary to perfectly match your switch plates with your frames and light fixtures, but make sure to take them into consideration when selecting the finish and style.

Unlike pulls, knobs, and other hardware pieces, switch plates and outlet covers are nearly wall decor items in themselves. Functionally, they serve as decorative frames to light switches and plugs. With that in mind, painted ceramic or hammered tin could just as perfectly suit your walls as plain nickel, chrome, or bronze.
