    Folk Art Wall Sculpture, Haiti Metal Art, Fair Trade, Recycled Metal Art, Steel wall Sculpture, 34" x 17"

    Metal drum art is the sustaining life source of Croix-des-Bouquets, the town outside of Port-au-Prince where the tradition of metal art was born. Companies from the capital used to dump empty metal drums in Croix-des-Bouquets, along with other industrial waste. In the 1940’s a local blacksmith, Georges Liautaud, took the metal drums and began combining them with iron bars to make elaborate metal crosses. His ingenuity turned waste into something useful that has become a new uniquely Haitian craft tradition.
