Producer Profile

Haitian Metal Art

When you visit Croix des Bouquets, the area of town known for Haitian metal art in the capital of Port-Au-Prince, you are met with a cacophony of tink, tink, tink as ball peen hammers strike sheets of steel. The sheets are cut from steel drums colored by oil and other liquids the drums at one time held. The process of turning sheets of metal into beautiful wall art is all done by hand, from cutting holes that become edges of trees and leaves, to accenting each lizard with a texture of scales, to painting or lacquering the final design. The artists are proud of their work, signing the pieces on the back side, leaving a raised, reversed signature on the front.

Detailed Comments: Wanted to update my review on this item. This Christmas I sold out of all I had in stock of these. People love them! I displayed them using Christmas wreath floor stands which I purchased from a local craft/hobby chain store. Once again, these steel drum wall hangings are a focal point of my inventory. The artisan makes several versions of "trees" but his Tree of Life is my favorite. I actually have never stocked any of the others..trying to stay true to this particular design I guess since I am... More details

Detailed Comments: The Tree of Life has been my personal favorite of all the items I purchase from Global Crafts. When displayed, my customers love it as well. It is gorgeous, makes a bold statement and grabs people's attention wanting to find out more. If you don't have these in your shop....get some in! Be careful though, edges are very sharp. I keep a sign on all of mine that says "Sharp Edges" (don't want any accidents with the "little' customers shopping with parents.

Detailed Comments: One of the goal's of my online resale business is to provide recycleed, repurposed and fair trade works along with the antiques and collectibles and artwork I have collected over the years. This delightful piece of artwork refashioned from old metal drums by Haitian artists is just the sort of unique item I've been seeking. Thanks!
