Handcrafted Butterfly metal wall art – Metal art, Haitian steel drum metal art – Garden decor – Butterfly Wall Hanging – 34″ Handcrafted Butterfly Metal Wall Decor – Haitian Recycled Steel Drum Metal Wall Art, TO VIEW OUR ENTIRE ETSY SHOP, CLICK HERE…. http://www.etsy.com/shop/HaitianMetal Butterfly measures 33″ x 34″. This butterfly design wall hanging is hand cut from upcycled recycled 50 gallon steel drums. Both ends of the drum are removed & placed inside of the remaining cylinder along with scrap paper, dried banana or sugar cane leaves. It is set on fire, to burn off any paint or residue. When cooled, the drum is cut down the side & flattened out to create a “metal canvas” of approximately 3′ x 6′, upon which the design is drawn. Using hammer, chisel & various primitive tools, the shape is cut & the various decorative patterns are pounded into the metal, creating a unique & treasured piece of primitive art. The finished design is coated with a protective finish. Can be hung indoors or outdoors. Upcycling is to reuse an object or materials (55 gallon steel oil drums) to create a product of higher value or quality than the original object or materials. The process of taking something that would be thrown away & turning it into something useful & of value. See our photos showing the process of turning a recycled steel drum into a work of art.
