Guitar Girl Recycled Metal Art Handmade in Haiti, 14" X 28"

Haiti
$59.00

The traditional Haitian method of creating metal sculptures from discarded oil drums has changed very little since its development in the 1950's by blacksmith, Georges Llataud.  To begin, the drums are burned out, cleaned up, sanded down and pounded flat.  Next, the artist chalks his intended design onto the prepared metal and begins the heavy and tedious work of cutting and detailing, using only a hammer and chisel.  Finally, the sculpture is sealed with a weather-proof finish, so that it may be easily displayed indoors or out.
