Enamel Panels

At the entrances of the Health Learning and Health Discovery Buildings, images from the series were installed as porcelain enamel panels to greet visitors at the major thresholds of the complex. A more intimately-scaled selection of images emphasizing the gestures of the body and the hand are intended to populate study areas and cubbies. More than 70 panels inhabit the buildings of the Dell Medical School.

Material Process

Porcelain Enamel is a mixture of glass and inorganic pigments fused to a steel substrate at temperatures exceeding 1400 degrees Fahrenheit. This extreme temperature creates a molecular bond between the glass and steel, forming a permanent bond. Porcelain Enamel is not affected by UV rays or extreme weather conditions. It is also impervious to all forms of graffiti, cannot be harmed by chemicals or solvents, and is the most scratch resistant surface available.
