Dragonfly Garden Stake with MarblesRegular price $34.00
Something new and special in Haitian garden stakes … translucent green marbles to catch the sun and to delight our dragonfly friend.
Crafted from recycled 55 gallon steel drums by village artisans in Haiti, this moon and angel are one of a kind. The process of turning sheets of metal into beautiful art is all done by hand. Steel drums used to transport oil into the capital of Haiti are cut, the oil is burned off to clean the metal, and then flattened in order to create stunning, up-cycled art. Suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
Artisans have persevered during political turmoil, earthquakes, hunger and Covid-19 to keep the art alive and earn a living to support their families and community. This purchase supports socially responsible sourcing and contributes to poverty alleviation through dignified income opportunities to the people of Haiti.
Care: if displaying outdoors it is recommended to spray with a clear lacquer once or twice a year, as prolonged exposure to the elements will cause rust.
