Scherenschnitte in Metal

While watching CBS Sunday Morning, I discovered a kind of art that reminded me of scherenschnitte.  Haitian oil drum art.    I might want to refer to this the next time I teach copper tooling.

Very cool! I'm teaching a workshop in tooling foil this November. Maybe I'll include something about this! I'm particularly struck by the photo of the artisan holding his piece down with his bare foot on the dirt ground while he tools his work. Wow!

I love that show too. I saw that piece this morning. Amazing!
