I began working in Haiti over 19 years ago with the goal of fighting poverty through art. During that time, we have worked with as many as 120 artists, cultivating business relationships, and building friendships. We have learned the good that comes from Fair Trade. Because of our firm belief in Fair Trade and its practice, every sale we make of metal art makes a positive impact on the artist who produces it. Those benefits flow through the whole workshop and create prosperity for their own family, workers and apprentices, and ultimately, the entire village. We are proud to be a part of that and we hope that as you admire your new piece of handcrafted, recycled folk art you will feel a bit of that pride as well.
This piece is an example of what we have carried in the past. Visit our website or our Etsy shop to see our full collections!

Large Metal Bowl Flowers, Rustic Farmhouse Decor, Decorative Home Decor, Handmade in Haiti 9″ x 9″ x 4.5″
Each lovely candle bowl is entirely handcrafted by the artist, who first chalks his design onto the metal and then cuts it out with a hammer and chisel. By pounding out the bead-work and fine detail, the leaf pattern emerges. He then bends the leaves around the base and rivets the edges together to give the bowl its shape. A wonderful innovation in the folk art tradition of Haitian metal sculpture.
