Abundance Cross Sconce

$ 40.00

This Abundance Cross Sconce is a beautiful addition to any home. In a unique Haitian technique Josnel and his studio artisans hand craft recycled oil drums into decorative works of art. Recycled oil drums are first burned off to remove paint and other byproducts from previous use. Then Josnel cuts the intricate pattern inspired by the elements of their everyday life out of the flattened oil drum. Hammers create dimension and delicate patterning as accents. Finally, the piece is sanded, varnished, brushed, and varnished again to achieve the rich patina.  The corn at the tips represents fertility and is a symbol that the people have enough to eat. Light a candle on the sconce for a dramatic effect.

Measures 15 inches long by 11 inches wide


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