Haitian Cut Metal Decorative Bowl

Sale $48 $38

With its gunmetal and white finish, and tiered, wide shape, this decorative bowl infuses a room with industrial style, yet still retains the warmth of its handmade past. Straight from Croix des Bouquets, a mystical village considered one of the largest, sustainable art communities in Haiti. Master artists create their one-of-a-kind pieces – known as fer de coup – from scrap metal. They repurpose 55-gallon metal oil drums by burning and flattening them (often with help from a strong assistant) to create a metal “canvas.” With chalk, they draw the shape, then hammer, chisel and cut the metal using age-old tools. Each piece is coated in a protective finish. Stunningly rich art from the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. (Decorative use only. Not food safe.)
