Meet the Artisans

Metal Artisan in Haiti When you visit Croix des Bouquets, the area of town known for Haitian metal art in the capital of Port-Au-Prince, you are met with a cacophony of tink, tink, tink as ball peen hammers strike sheets of steel. The sheets are cut from steel drums colored by oil and other liquids the drums at one time held. The process of turning sheets of metal into beautiful wall art is all done by hand, from cutting holes that become edges of trees and leaves, to accenting each lizard with a texture of scales, to painting or lacquering the final design. The artists are proud of their work, signing the pieces on the back side, leaving a raised, reversed signature on the front.

Incredibly Beautiful, Uplifting, Spiritually Symbolic

I love to support artists making beauty and often as good as praying Good and Harmony into the world as they do so. Since a child when my teen sis was often in danger of dying, we turned to music and creating art with yarn, coloring, designing clothes, woodworking. I've always loved metal art. I use these to add life to a railing on my back porch in our Nature sanctuary. My sis is still alive at 65 because she has Purpose, as making art with sound or matter can give purpose and Hope. Sharing that Art can indeed enhance the Life Force.
