Easy Breezy Tree Haitian Iron Wall Art
17 1/2" dia
Handmade in Haiti
Recycled oil drum
For use indoors or out.
Framed in a round decorative border, these sweet birds move gently in the breezy branches of this Tree of Life! Crafted by Edward Dieudonne. The artisans start with designs inspired by nature and culture. From cardboard patterns, they trace their design with chalk on the flattened metal from torn-down oil drums. With chisels and hammers, they carefully cut and decorate the metal by hand. Each piece is shaped and smoothed, then the artists boldly and proudly chisel their name on to the metal sculpture.
