TO VIEW OUR ENTIRE ETSY SHOP, CLICK HERE…. http://www.etsy.com/shop/HaitianMetal Dove metal wall hanging measures 17 x 18″ – Iridescent finish. 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. Upcycling is the process of taking something old or used & making it new again & of a greater value than it was originally. This is what we have done with the steel drum material used in this piece. Please view some of the photos of the process of making our pieces. They are handcrafted from a steel drum, flattened & then cut into a great decorative piece for your wall decor. Click to view our other categories of Haitian metal art.
