Large Coral Bowl

$ 70.00

One of Josnel’s classic patterns this unique coral bowl is hand crafted out of recycled oil drums in Haiti. Josnel and his studio artisans convert formerly waste materials into a piece of art. A labor of love the 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 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 deep patina. This simple pattern also creates amazing shadows on surrounding walls when a candle is burned inside.

Measures 10 inch diameter, 6 inches deep


    
"I hope every customer knows that each piece they buy contributes to renewing hope in a community in Haiti."- Josnel Bruno, Haiti
