The center of Haitian metal sculpture is the village of Croix-des-Bouquets, where the clanging sound of hammers striking chisels is a constant music. To begin, the artist chalks his design onto the metal. Chisels, dies and a large hammer are used to cut and shape the piece, giving it form and texture. When the highly intricate and physically demanding work is complete and the artist is satisfied with his work, he signs his name boldly with a small chisel and applies a clear, weather-proof coating. The result is a wonderful, fair trade piece of handcrafted art. This rocker cover has been finished with a clear enamel coating, which will protect it from the elements. However, if it is displayed outdoors, we recommend applying a spray-on clear coat in order to maintain it’s fresh-out-of the box look. Five minutes once a year is all it takes. Easy!
- A clever design to make a ho-hum rocker cover a little more lively and fun!
- Made from recycled metal, each piece is individually crafted by an artist who benefits directly from the practices of fair trade.
- Although this cover doesn’t come with screws, you can use the ones from your old rocker cover. If they appear too shiny, color the heads in with a black sharpie marker. No one has to know…
- Fair trade isn’t just a good idea – it’s the only way we do business.
- Color variation from dark silver to rustic brown tones.
