Recycled Oil Drum Rounded Wing Bird Ornament

$ 10.00

This beautiful bird ornament 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 the intricate pattern inspired by wildlife that surrounds the island of Haiti with simple hand tools. He shapes the pattern using a hammer to achieve texture and design details. Finally, the ornament is sanded, varnished, brushed, and varnished again to achieve the deep patina.

This makes a beautiful addition to your holiday decor.

Measures approximately 5 inches high by 5.5 inches long.
