Creation by Anne Mucci
"When the terrible earthquake devastated Haiti in January 2010, I immediately wished to contribute to the recovery of the country by concentrating on developing the economic activities of artists and craftsmen.
I went to Haiti several times in 2010 and met many Bosmétal. I was so fascinated by their talent, creativity and impressive positiveness, that I started to collaborate with them to make their work be exported, brought to light, and appreciated internationally.
The arts of carved metal belong to the Haitian tradition and have known a significant enthusiasm especially in the beginning of the Fifties.
I carry out the selection of the products on site through frequent and direct meeting every year. Step by step, we learn to understand and trust each other and build up a real partnership.
All the pieces are handmade and reflect the genuine talent of the Haitian artists, who still live in extremely difficult conditions.
Both poetic and modern, these pieces of art « talk to us », and pass us on a wonderful energy.
Haitian artists really deserve to get success and recognition throughout the world."
Tree of life "Feuilles dentelle", hand carved in one piece of recycled sheet metal, no solders.
The metal is repelled to give the different reliefs on the leaves, the birds, the roots.
The metal is simply cleaned and varnished.
Unique piece handmade in Haiti.
