New Beginnings Wall Hanging

$ 30.00

The New Beginnings wall hanging is hand crafted out of oil drums in Haiti. The process begins when the oil drums are burned off to remove paint and other byproducts from previous use. Next Josnel hand cuts the intricate pattern inspired by the nature that surrounds him out of the flattened oil drum. Then he shapes the flat pattern into a cylinder using a series of hammers to achieve texture and additional design details. Finally, the piece is sanded, varnished, brushed, and varnished again to achieve the deep patina. The beautiful “tree of life” design adds an interesting detail for any wall in your home.

Measures 11 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
