Coral Reef Metal Basket 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"

Haiti
$49.00

These small, versatile bowls can be terrific as a candle holder or for displaying favorite shells collected along the beach. Each is entirely handcrafted by the artist, who first chalks his design onto the metal and then cuts it out with a hammer and chisel. By finely pounding in the beadwork, the coral design emerges. He then bends the coral fingers around the base and rivets the edges together to give the bowl its shape. A wonderful innovation in the folk art tradition of Haitian metal sculpture.
