Metal art, Metal wall art - Haitian art, Tree Metal art wall hanging. Handcrafted from recycled steel drums in Haiti.

Handcrafted tree of life wall metal wall decor. Handcrafted Metal Art 34" x 34".

This metal tree wall art design is hand cut from recycled 50 gallon steel drums. Both ends of the 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.

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.

We make all of our metal art pieces in our own workshop in Port au Prince, Haiti. Our photos show some of the process of turning a recycled steel drum into a work of art for your home.

Discount - We offer a 20% discount on orders over $500. Use discount code HM500 when placing your order.

You can view a few photos of the process of making these pieces of metal art.
