Description

This intricate metal art piece is made from a reclaimed 55 gallon steel drum in Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti. As an island nation, Haiti has historically imported most of it's oil in 55 gallon drums. For the past 50 or more years, metal workers have been up-cycling and recycling these drums into beautiful art. Artisans first cut the design into a piece of cardboard and then overlay the cardboard onto steel to chisel out.

Due to the upcycled nature of Haiti's metal art, sometimes pieces will begin to weather and rust, especially if left outside. While some like the vintage look, if you would prefer to return it to it's original beauty use steel wool to buff out the rust and then seal the piece with a clear enamel finish.

Purchasing this item provides an artisan job in the poorest country of the Western Hemisphere. Many Haitians live on less than two dollars a day. Purchasing a metal art piece allows the artisan to become self sufficient and goes beyond the worker to impact their family and community.
