Small Hearts, Metal Milagro Charms, (set of 4), Love and Friendship, Unique Presents, Handmade in Haiti, 3"x3"
$24.50

"Milagros" is the Spanish word for "miracles." Milagros are small metal charms that come in a wide variety of shapes. Traditionally, these charms were used in Latin America and some European countries as religious petitions to saints and deities, somewhat like lighting votive candles at a church altar. People pin individual milagros to the fabric draped over the statue of a saint or sometimes set them out in a shrine. These delicate hearts, fashioned after milagro charms are terrific for adorning packages, hanging on a wall or in a collection, or slipped into a card o to say, "I love you."Following four generations of tradition, each piece of Haitian metal art is made entirely by hand with simple tools. Starting with a cast-off steel drum, the metal is cleaned, sanded, and pounded flat. From there, the artist chalks his design onto the metal and then begins the heavy, tedious work of cutting out the pattern with a hammer and chisel and giving the piece detail and dimension. Finally, he applies a clear-coat to the piece, which protects it and makes it perfectly suited for indoor or outdoor display.Though protected with a weather-proof coating, these sculptures will rust over time, if exposed to outdoor elements. . To prevent this from happening, grab a can of spray on enamel at the hardware store and go to it. Once a year should be plenty. It's a snap!

Garden Sunflower, Recycled Metal Art, Handcrafted in Haiti 8" X 11"

Garden Sunflower, Recycled Metal Art, Handcrafted in Haiti 8" X 11"
$22.95

Apprentice artists cut off the tops and bottoms of the drums are slit down the sides, pounded flat with mallets, and vigorously sanded. At this point the artist takes over, chalking his intended design onto the metal. Using a hammer and chisel and other simple tools, the artist undertakes the intricate work of cutting, beading and detailing each piece. When he is finally satisfied with the results, he pounds his signature onto the sculpture and seals it up with a protective finish. Hanging your art, choose a point where the design element is joined or notched and use a nail to hang it from that point on the wall. Use a second and a third nail (if necessary) within other design elements to straighten and secure the piece. Then stand back and admire your work. You'll see that the nails "disappear" into the sculpture. Beautiful! You can easily maintain it's appearance by taking five minutes to wipe the metal down with a cloth and spraying your piece once a year with an enamel clear coat.

These beautiful, hand crafted wall art pieces are made in Haiti. Perfect for indoor or out!. Made with only his hammer, chisel, and imagination! All of the Haitian Metal Art can be used both indoors or out. The sculptures have a clear enamel coat when shipped to you~ To maintain this original look you will need to spray the sculpture with a clear enamel every year and a half~ We use our local hardware brand Ace Clear Enamel spray. When used outdoors weather will wear away the enamel coating over time~ Many people prefer the natural aging process which is a rust~ Or to maintain the original look give the sculpture a light spray front and back with the clear enamel~ These sculptures are made of a heavy gauge steel so will not rust away~ If your sculpture does rust or you have forgotten to spray it, do not worry, just lightly sand the rusted areas, then spray it with clear enamel front and back. Now you are good to go for another year!
