Recycled Oil Drum Sunburst Mirrors - Black & Red

  • These hand-welded mirrors are made using recycled materials in Burkina Faso. Each circle is hand-cut from a discarded oil drum barrel and covered with clear lacquer. 

    The mirrors were picked up by the owner on her last visit, and they show the colorful adaptability emerging from Africa's recycled art scene.

    Medium measures 37"D with a 15.5"D mirror. Large measures 40"D with a 17"D miror.

  • Malick Mbaye creates colorful, imaginative art using recycled materials. Mbaye does more than make art: he and his mentor also teach many underprivileged, young men how to make a living from learning a craft. Mbaye's art is always in demand and is recognized for its unparalleled creativity and craftsmanship.
