Iron and art in Village Croix-des-Bouquets

François Claude: “We’re in Croix-des-Bouquets, a city in Haiti’s West department.

Our workshop, called Serge Jolimeau, is situated in the heart of the artists village. In this workshop we create works for art exhibitions and also direct sales.

People come here from all over the world to admire and buy our art pieces.

In order to create our pieces, we draw the designs on paper or cardboard and then transfer them on the metal or any other material we are using. Once the design appears clear on the surface of the metal, we start engraving it”.

Jean Baptiste: “We create special art pieces with quality materials”.

Jean Exuvara: “I create beautiful angels by applying gold leaf to recycled metal. After giving the metal a particular shape, we cover it with a specific glue which we let dry for a while, and then we apply the gold leaf. Other artisans help me in the process. Everything we do is handmade.

Once finished, the pieces are exhibited in a room which serves both as an exhibition gallery and a shop where everyone can admire the artists’ works and eventually buy them”.
