Hand made Haitian metal art. Using a recycled 55-gallon oil drums, Haitian artists cut and flatten the oil drum. Then with chalk, the design is drawn onto the metal sheet. Using a hammer, chisel and various primitive tools, the shape is cut and the various decorative patterns are pounded into the metal, creating a unique piece of amazing art. The finished design is signed by the artist and coated with a protective finish.
No two pieces are alike. When receiving your pieces they all vary slightly and some having more Haitian accents to them than others. Some are more rustic and others more silver depending on the oil barrel used.
