Story Behind the Art
Eugene Jacques and Carlo Brutus in Croix des Bouquet, come from an area of Port-Au-Prince Haiti known for artisans who make oil drum art. The constant hammering from the sheds in the area lead to beautiful metalwork, with each stop offering new designs. Eugene's shed yields unique three-dimensional masks with cogs and bicycle chains for earrings. These are just two of the thousands of independent Haitian metal artists striving to make a sustainable living by exporting their pieces from a country where political strife and lack of tourism has eliminated most sales outlets. Prior to the 2010 earthquake, Carlo and others relied on other established producer groups to perform activities necessary to export including banking and shipping.

What is Worldstock?

  • Oil Drum Oranaments

    These are awesome gifts. I first ordered 4 sets for people but I ended up braking up the sets and gifting each ornament separately. I think i might have just ordered the last 3 set so I can give out more. The sets come with three ornaments in a plastic bag, but each ornament has a tag that explains the world stock philosophy and how these special ornaments are made. I love worldstock.... marvelous quality items that are profitable to amazing artisans and important enterprises.
