Description

Inspired by feline friendship. To make this cut metal wall rack, artisans cut open 55-gallon drums, pound them flat, and then mark designs on the black metal with chalk. Using a chisel, they cut through the metal to make designs. Among Haiti’s most original art forms is the cut metal work from Croix des Bouquets, a small village outside of Port-au-Prince. The tradition began in the early 1930s with Georges Liataud’s imaginative cemetery crosses crafted from recycled metal.

  • NOT WHAT I EXPECTED
    . . . . .

    Although I am not returning this item, I was kind of disappointed when I received it. I guess the photo and description had led me to think it was bigger and more substantial than it really is. The tails of the cats were all completely flat, so I had to bend them outward myself, to make the hooks......

  • NOT WHAT I EXPECTED

    . . . . .

    Although I am not returning this item, I was kind of disappointed when I received it. I guess the photo and description had led me to think it was bigger and more substantial than it really is. The tails of the cats were all completely flat, so I had to bend them outward myself, to make the hooks... otherwise the tails would be flat against the wall. My original intent was to give this as a gift to a friend, which I will still do, but it didn't meet my expectations. The item did arrive extremely quickly, and was packaged very well.
