Hand painted metal dragonfly garden art. Hand cut from recycled steel drum. You will appreciate the quality of the painting as well as the solid feel of the metal. This is not a stamped out piece. It has been hand cut from 55 gallon steel drum in our workshop in Haiti and pounded out to give a rounded look to the dragonfly. Finally, it is beautifully hand painted and finished with a polyurethane varnish. It is a piece that you will be proud to display in your home or garden.

Measures 29" x 34"

This dragonfly is available in a smaller 17" size --- https://www.etsy.com/listing/152965929/dragonfly-garden-art-17-haitian-hand?ref=shop_home_active

Upcycling is the process of taking something old or used and making it new again and of a greater value than it was originally. This is what we have done with the steel drum material used in this piece.

Photos of the process are shown. We start with a large, recycled steel drum. Burn off the paint and residue, Flatten the drum. Draw the pattern and cut it with hammer and chisel. It is then hand painted and finished with a protective clear finish.
