Artist profile: Winzor

Winzor, of Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti, is the creative force behind some of Three Stone Steps’ most popular, affordable, and accessible works of recycled metal wall art, including suns and hearts.

He’s also been great to work with on some of Three Stone Steps’ design ideas, including this recycled metal adjustable ring (he made the flower one):

And, we’ve worked together on this year’s fabulous recycled metal ornament based on his very popular trumpeting angel recycled artwork.  (I’ll keep the ornaments under wraps for now, but retailers looking for wholesale information can find them here.)

Friday Photo: A metal art artist

Meet Evenson.  He’s a maker of recycled metal art in Haiti.  I met him during my first trip to Haiti in 2008–and I’m not so sure how this happened–I count on him tons.

He makes all of Three Stone Steps’ menorahs (you can see him holding last year’s design in the photo) and the hamsas and the earrings along with assorted other pieces.

yes, it’s as beautiful as it looks!

Have a great weekend, whatever you’re working on.
