Artisan Winzor Gouin tells his story of how he came to make this metal art from recycled oil drums:
"My mother played an important role in my metal sculpture learning. It was not easy [to learn] because you hammer in using a chisel in your hand. As I know it was necessary to learn, 'cause I saw in advance that I could earn my life through it; so I spent a great number of time learning it."
This fair trade recycled metal wall art was made by Winzor Gouin in Haiti. He begins with a 55 gallon oil barrel. Winzor first splits open the drum, flattens it out, and then sketches out the design with chalk, and cuts the steel using only a hammer and nail.
100% recycled material (recycled metal oil drum). Makes a great unique, socially conscious wedding gift.
Large bird design is approximately 10-12" by 10-13". See other large and small bird designs from Haiti.
Set of 3 large birds fits in Greenheart Large gift box.
