    Sea Bowl, Table top, centerpiece, Handmade in Haiti 7" x 12" x 12"

    This beautiful metal piece, its a welcoming sculpture for your home. The center of this activity of Haitian arts is the village of Croix-des-Bouquets, where the clang clang of metal on metal, the chisels banging out the sculptures is a constant music. The pattern is drawn on the metal and chisels and dies and a large hammer are used to cut and mold the designs.

    It's Cactus Metal Art Haiti

    Haiti metal art (06:03)
    IN THE BEGINNING… There was a railroad blacksmith in the village of Croix-des-Bouquets with a little time on his hands, a few simple tools, a hefty supply of scrap metal, and boundless imagination. Georges Liataud saw possibility where others saw refuse. Taking discarded steel drums, he cut off the tops and bottoms and flattened out the sides with a hammer to create a smooth surface. Visualizing his design - crosses at first, later images of village life and Haitian culture – he chalked it onto the prepared metal. Then, with a hammer and chisel, he cut along the chalk marks and the sculpture took its shape. With dies and more hammering, the full character of the sculpture came forth in details applied blow by blow.
