Birds & Leaves Metal Wall Decor - Handcrafted Recycled Haitian Steel Drum Art, Tree Wall Art, Metal Birds, Tree Decor, Metal Wall Art

This piece 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 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.

Please view our photos showing some of the process of transforming a recycled steel drum into a work of art for your home. We have been working in Haiti for almost 30 years.

Wall hanging measures 15" x 48"
