  • Beautiful Roots Painted Tree From Beyond Borders
    15" x 15" Curly branches, smooth roots and subtly painted leaves and birds make this new round easy to live with and enjoy. Crafted by Stanley Brutus....

  • In the 1950s, DeWitt Peters, a patron of Haitian arts, was intrigued by the crosses marking many of the above-ground tombs. Peters discovered the blacksmith who had fashioned the crosses, soon-to-be renowned Haitian artist Georges Liautaud … and so began Haitian metal art. The original raw material was iron, but with many goods shipped to Haiti in 55-gallon steel oil drums, there was a ready supply of discarded drums … the perfect canvas for the artisans.

  • Red Rooster Round From Beyond Borders
    23" x 23" We worked closely with the artist to make this new rooster round special with red paint with gold highlights … he is proud and loud! Crafted by Jimmy Dade....

  • Over the years the number of Haitian metal artists has multiplied via families and mentor / students embracing the craft. Today the center of Haitian metal arts is the village of Croix-des-Bouquets, where the clang-clang of metal on metal, the workers with their tools banging out the sculptures, is a constant music. The artisans start with designs inspired by nature and culture. From cardboard patterns, they trace their design with chalk on the flattened metal from torn-down oil drums. With chisels and hammers, they carefully cut and decorate the metal. Each piece is shaped and smoothed, and on many of the pieces the artist will proudly chisel his or her name into the metal sculpture. Then the piece is coated with a weather-resistant varnish.

  • Evocative Painted Cross From Beyond Borders
    12" x 17" Not all of our customers like the painted metal designs, but who can resist the subtle and beautiful painting technique on this wonderful cross from Orelien Romaire?...

  • The finish on your metal wall sculpture is ready for indoor display. If you are presenting your piece in outdoor elements for extended time, you will want to spray it with a clear gloss spray varnish (Rust-Oleum®) to keep it protected. Untreated, your piece may begin to rust. If you prefer the rusted patina, to deter further corrosion thoroughly spray it with WD-40® penetrating oil … and do not wipe the spray. For both spray treatments, you will likely need to reapply at least once a year.

  • Butterfly Painted Garden Stake From Beyond Borders
    8" x 8" on 20" stake When we visit Haiti we often see work that is a 'must have' … this brightly painted magenta butterfly stake is one of those … breathtaking! Made by Omiscar Luis Juste....
