Recycled roosters

One day, we turned around and realized we were carrying a load of roosters.  (Ok.  This happened during last shopping trip to Haiti, which was way back in January.)

Here is just a bit of the selection:

recycled metal art from Haiti, roosters

they seem a tad coy, yes?

This piece, found here, is super popular, and made by one of the few female metal artisans in Haiti.

Coincidentally, this piece is also made by a female artisan, in fact, the wife of the artisan who creates Three Stone Steps’ love and peace pieces.  Depending on the decor, I can see this in a kitchen.  If you want it for yours, you can find it here.

this little piece should fit just about anywhere

Not shown to scale!  This small piece, 4.5″ x 6″ is perfect to fit anywhere.  And, need I say it, it’s A for adorable.  It’s right here.

And, that’s not all!

keep your hot stuff off the table

Ok, this wise looking bird isn’t yet on my site–one day, I’ll have it updated to include housewares–but I always think that if Picasso’s cubist period took place in Haiti and if he worked in recycled oil drums, well, he’d make a rooster trivet not too different from this one.

Last but not least and not on my site, check out this wonderful papier-mâché rooster below:

Cute & life-like, but definitely not for the yard.
