Coral and Fish Bowl
A playful school of fish peek in and out of this rustic coral and fish bowl which is hand crafted out of recycled oil drums in Haiti. Josnel and his studio artisans convert waste oil drums into a piece of art. The labor intensive process begins when the oil drums are burned off to remove paint and other byproducts from previous use. Then Josnel cuts with simple hand tools the intricate pattern inspired by the marine life that surrounds the island of Haiti. He shapes the flat pattern into a round bowl using a hammer to achieve texture and design details. Finally, the bowl is sanded, varnished, brushed, and varnished again to achieve the warm patina.
