  • The center of Haitian metal sculpture is the village of Croix-des-Bouquets, where the clanging sound of hammers striking chisels is a constant music. To begin, the artist chalks his design onto the metal. Chisels, dies and a large hammer are used to cut and shape the piece, giving it form and texture. When the highly intricate and physically demanding work is complete and the artist is satisfied with his work, he signs his name boldly with a small chisel and applies a clear, weather-proof coating. The result is a wonderful, fair trade piece of handcrafted art.

  • Before this sculpture left the workshop in Haiti, a clear, weather-proof coating was applied to protect it from the elements. If it is displayed indoors, you'll never have to lift a finger, but if it is going to go outside, you might want to apply a spray-on clear coat yourself once a year to retain it's glossy patina

  • Hanging your metal art is easy, once you know how. Choose a place it within two design elements that are touching or notched toward the center of the piece and drive a nail into the wall at that point. Using a second and possibly a third nail, place those in other notched areas within the design to secure it firmly. Avoid placing nails in the eyes or mouth. A viewer's eye will go straight to those elements and a nail there will draw attention to itself. You don't want the nails to become part of the details - you want them to "disappear."

  • Fair trade is the name of the game, and it's the only way we play!

  • In it's former life, this Haitian Metal Angel was a 55-gallon steel drum. Now it's a heavenly angel, with extravagant ribbons and curls and blowing a horn. Recycling is beautiful!
