Angel in Flowers Metal Wall Hanging, Metal Wall Decor - Handcrafted Metal Art ,Haitian Recycled Steel Drum Metal Art Angel Design

Hand cut from recycled steel drums. Measures 24" round.

This graceful angel design is hand cut from upcycled - 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. Can be hung indoors or outdoors.

Upcycling is to reuse an object or materials (55 gallon steel oil drums) to create a product of higher value or quality than the original object or materials. The process of taking something that would be thrown away and turning it into something useful and of value.

Be sure to look at the photos that we have, showing the process of taking a steel drum and transforming it into a piece of art for your home decor.

All of the metal art pieces are handcrafted in my own workshop in Port au Prince, Haiti. The photos show some of the process of turning a recycled steel drum into a work of art for your home.
