Meet the Artisans
This item was ethically crafted by hand by artists in Croix des Bouquets, the area of Haiti's capital that is known for its exquisite Haitian metal art. Each metal sheet is 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 work in safe and empowering conditions and are paid a fair wage for their dignified work. Each piece is signed by the artist on the back side, leaving a raised, reversed signature on the front.
