Creating Recycled Garden Art
The itsy bitsy spider climbed up the water
spout. This incredible, not so tiny spider and web were hand
crafted in Haiti from a 55 gallon oil drum that had been flattened and
painstakingly cut by hand with a hammer and chisel. Haiti is a country
with many artists but few raw materials. What they did have was a
huge number of used oil drums, so someone got the very good idea to
these ugly steel containers turning them into beautiful steel sculpture.
This is now a
thriving art form in Haiti.
