4 1/2" high address number is handcrafted from a flattened, recycled steel drum at our workshop in Haiti and hand painted. It is finished with a protective varnish. This is for 3 numbers of your choice. Please see our listings for more or less than 3 address numbers. When you place your order, please specify what 3 numbers you are needing.

There are 2 holes in each of the numbers to hang with a screw or nail. ( not included ) They could also be hung using a liquid nails type product found at Home Depot or Lowes.

Both ends of the steel drum are removed and placed inside of the remaining cylinder along with scrap paper, dried banana or sugar cane leaves. It is set on fire, to burn off any paint or residue. When cooled, the drum is cut down the side and flattened out to create a "metal canvas" of approximately 3' x 6', upon which the design is drawn. Using hammer, chisel and various primitive tools, the shape is cut and the various decorative patterns are pounded into the metal, creating a unique and treasured piece of primitive art. The finished design is coated with a protective finish. Can be hung indoors or outdoors. .

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.
