Firing, sanding, pounding, chiseling, cutting and shaping, Haitian artists fashion each beautiful recycled metal sculpture by hand. It is a tradition well-established in the village of Croix-des-Bouquets, as fathers have taught sons and neighbor has taught neighbor for four generations.

Steel Drum Oil Barrels made into beautiful art sculptures
To begin the process, all residue must be cleaned out from the discarded steel drums. The tops and bottoms are then cut off, the drums are split down the middle, and they are pounded flat and sanded smooth.
Next, the metal artist chalks his design onto the recycled metal. With artistry, they chisels, die and hammer the metal pieces into shape.
Lastly, once the artist is satisfied with his or her work, they apply a clear, weather-proof coating to help protect this wonderful piece of wall art from the elements, making it suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
