Express your Creativity, Spirit & Soul with Art & Words to Live By with Handmade Fair Trade Metal Wall Art Decor! 


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.

We love our new 'Words' to Live by Signage - Expressions of Artistic Magnitude, these are Artist Statements! Just arrived!
