11" x 11" Small Shine
by Geraldine Balan
The art of handcrafting metal sculptures that has been handed down for several generations provides a sustainable living for over 100 families in a small village in Haiti. The work begins with a recycled 55 gallon steel drum. The steel drum is prepared for the sculpture by removing the top, stuffing it with dried banana leaves and straw and finally igniting it to burn off any residue and paint. Once the barrel is cool, it is pounded into a flat sheet and prepared for the sculpture. The artist draws his intended shape on the metal and begins his work with a hammer and chisel.
What a beautiful addition to any home and, just here in time for Christmas. This beautiful Christmas Wreath, 23" x 23" is made by an amazing and creative artist, based in Haiti. With imagination and, just a hammer and a nail, he took the lid of a steel drum, and made this lovely and creative wreath out of it. All his work, is suffused with his love of nature and family. The sales of his artwork, is helping to make a better life for him and his family.
