Metal garden art - Garden Decor - This handcrafted garden plant stake is hand cut from upcycled - recycled 50 gallon steel drums at our own workshop in Haiti. Plant Stick measures 11" x 14". A 30" metal rod is included, to display your plant stick..
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. Handcrafted steel drum metal art.
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 some of the photos of the process of making our pieces. They are handcrafted from a steel drum, flattened and then cut into a great decorative piece for your wall decor.
