Joseu: Metal Artist from Haiti



In the village of Jubilee, on the outskirts of Gonaives, Haiti, the co-founder of 2nd Story Goods—a Gonaives based non-profit—met Joseu (pictured here with wife, Emanuella), who was making aluminum pots out of forms laid into the dusty ground. Into the side of each pot he inscribed the words "I love Jesus," proclaiming the courage Jesus gives him. Taking his story to heart, 2nd Story Goods asked him to create aluminum products that could be sold on the global market. He readily accepted, and thus, the hand-hammered aluminum products were born.
