Hand Crafted Steel Holiday Ornaments
These stylish tree decorations are handmade in Haiti from scrap steel drums and hand painted and are approximately 4" inches at the longest point. They are light enough to hang well on a tree and keep Haiti in mind during the holiday period.
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.
