Garden Angel Haitian Metal Oil Drum
Fair trade and handcrafted by Haitian artisan Romel Balan.
Haitian steel drum sculptures (fer découpé) are fabulous both indoors and out. Artisans start with designs inspired by nature and culture. From cardboard patterns, they trace their design with chalk on the flattened metal from torn-down oil drums. With chisels and hammers they carefully cut and decorate the metal by hand. Each piece is shaped, smoothed, coated with gloss varnish, and then signed by the artist.
Dimensions: 15 in. circumference
