Each of the Haitian oil drum metal hearts is handmade and beautiful.
The artist begins with a 55 gallon oil barrel which they split open and flatten out as a large sheet of canvas~ He first sketches out the design with chalk then cuts the steel using only a hammer and a nail~
This heart measures 2 inches wide by 3-1/2 inches tall with a hanging loop making it perfect to adorn your assemblage or other projects.
Proceeds from the sale of this handmade Haitian heart will fund the Haitian relief activities of HAND/EYE Fund's Artisan Grants Program. Hand/Eye Fund works in Haiti to help artisans recover from the life-challenging loss of shelter, equipment, workshops and income. Artisans in Haiti embody their country's rich cultural heritage, employ their neighbors, solve community problems with their entrepreneurial skills and create opportunities for themselves and others. They are essential to Haiti's future and HAND/EYE Fund is dedicated to serving them.
