STORY

Beautiful sculptures are hand cut from recycled 55 gallon oil steel drums. The technique involve burning the metal with scrap paper, dried banana or sugar cane leaves to burn off any paint or residue. Then the drum is cut down the side and flattened out to create a "metal canvas" upon which the design is drawn. Using various primitive tools, the shape is cut and the various decorative treasured pieces are pounded into the metal, creating a unique and treasured piece of primitive art. The finished design is coated with a protective finish. Can be hung indoors or outdoors.
