    ITEM#: 13586094

    • Materials: Recycled steel drum
    • Dimensions: 8 inches wide x 8 inches long

    Story Behind the Art:
    Carlo Brutus and Eugene Jacques are two of the many artisans in Croix des Bouquets, an area of Port-Au-Prince Haiti known for artisans who make oil drum art. The constant hammering from the sheds in the area leads to beautiful metalwork with each shop offering new designs. Eugene's shed is tucked behind several others and yields unique three-dimensional masks with cogs and bicycle chains for earrings. Each piece is a work of art and signed with 'Eugene'. Carlo has what seems like hundreds of different designs of the ubiquitous round steel drum artwork hanging from every inch of wall space in his tiny warehouse. The Diaspora of Haitians has spread the designs and skills of Oil Drum art throughout the Caribbean but the art is truly Haitian. Old oil drums are no longer readily available and are imported into Haiti by container and sold to the artisans. Even though cheaper more readily available steel sheets could be used artisans rely on the used drums for the patina in their art.

    • Less than expected

      Not as striking as I expected from pics. Kept it because it looks OK with a picture I was trying to complement. Feels flimsy. Won't get the other one I was thinking about.

    • Steel Drum Wall Art

      Always trying to do something different from the usual I decided to use the wall art with the three piece decorative shelving which has the larger center piece hung longwise rather than horizontalwise because when trying to hang the shelving it slipped into that position and I rather liked it and kept it that way. The metal work hangs above each shelf rather than having items sitting on shelf. On two of the other openings of the shelves I did place small metal items keeping metal everything but the shelves. Looks great. And knowing I helped some artist in a less fortunate country earn a living makes the purchase even more rewarding for me.

    • Small, but nice

      I know this says it measures 8 inches square, but it sure doesn't look like it. Just the same, it's pretty, well made and perfect for a nature-themed room. Would recommend.
