Hand cut from up-cycled – recycled steel drums using hammer & chisel. Measures 11″ x 34″ This piece is hand cut from 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 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. We make all of our metal art pieces in our own workshop in Port au Prince, Haiti. Our photos show some of the process of turning a recycled steel drum into a work of art for your home.
