Made from steel drums by Haitian craftspeople in the section of Port-au-Prince, Haiti called Croix des Bouquets, this sun is three dimensional with a diameter of 10 inches. It has a small hook to hang the piece and is sponge painted with bright colors inspired by the local Haitian culture.
Meet the Artisans
Founded in 1990 by a multinational group of young entrepreneurs, Caribbean Craft promotes employment in Haiti by training unskilled craftspeople, and by assisting the independent artisans through the introduction of new designs and new market outlets for painted Haitian metal art.
Caribbean Craft's specialty is the brightly colored, artistically hand-painted Haitian metal art wall hangings. These hand-painted Haitian metal art pieces are truly works of art. Wall art designs include painted metal geckos, painted metal dragonflies, and painted metal frogs.
