Meet the Artisans
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.

Bought to hang over an outside door. It's beautiful and unique, with great craftsmanship.
This art was exactly what I wanted. It looks good in a place that fits its style. The order was sent quickly and I appreciate the cost. Thank You
Just like examples we saw at the Milwaukee Art Museum! Lovely
This was a gift for someone else and they really liked it. It was supposed to be delivered by Christmas and then pushed until the beginning of January- would have been nice to know initially so I could have ensured it would be there on time.
Love this piece of art hanging on an outside wall surrounding my gazebo area. The size, shape and design are perfect.
