Haitian Metal Art

Haitian Metal Art A few years ago I bought this wonderful Haitian metal art sculpture for my dining room. It is one of my favorite pieces of art. Besides the eye catching creative design, what makes this so interesting is that is carved by hand from a flattened recycled oil drum. Ever since then I have been on the lookout for other Haitian drum art.

Story Behind the Haitian Drum Art: Founded in 1990 by a multinational group of young entrepreneurs, Caribbean Craft, formerly known as Drexcoromotes creates employment in Haiti by training unskilled - but often highly gifted - craftspeople, and by assisting the independent artisans through the introduction of new designs and new market outlets. These pieces are all made by artisans in Croix des Bouquets, Haiti.

Outside their workshops, stacks of discarded 55-gallon drums await transformation. The artist first removes both ends of the drum, reserving those pieces for smaller sculptures. Next, he stuffs the drum with straw and ignites it to burn out any residue. When it has cooled, he slices it down one side and pounds it into a flat four-by-six foot piece of metal, much like a painters canvas. Next the artist draws his intended design on the metal sheet. Using a hammer and chisel he begins cutting, shaping, and contouring the piece to its completion. Finally it is sealed with a protective, weather-proof finish. What is Worldstock?
