Fish Swimming Upstream, Haitian Metal Fair Trade Wall Art Beach Decor 22" x 9"

Haiti
$39.00

Fish design - perfect for the beach house, cabin, or sportsman's den! Entirely handmade, crafted from recycled metal in Haiti.

Our artists prosper through their own hard work, your purchases, and our practice of fair trade.

This sculpture has been finished with a clear enamel coating, which will protect it from the elements. However, if it is displayed outdoors, we recommend applying a spray-on clear coat in order to maintain it's fresh-out-of the box look. Five minutes once a year is all it takes. Easy! Following four generations of tradition, each piece of Haitian metal art is made entirely by hand with simple tools. Starting with a cast-off steel drum, the metal is cleaned, sanded, and pounded flat.

From there, the artist chalks his design onto the metal and then begins the heavy, tedious work of cutting out the pattern with a hammer and chisel and giving the piece detail and dimension. Finally, he applies a clear-coat to the piece, which protects it and makes it perfectly suited for indoor or outdoor display.
