A trio of graduated hearts layer to create this lovely and rustic sconce. In a unique Haitian technique Josnel Bruno and his studio artisans hand craft recycled oil drums into decorative works of art. Recycled oil drums are first burned off to remove paint and other byproducts from previous use. Then Josnel cuts the intricate pattern inspired by the elements of their everyday life out of the flattened oil drum. Hammers create dimension and delicate patterning as accents. Individual parts are attached and finally, the piece is sanded, varnished, brushed, and varnished again to achieve the rich patina. Measures 16 inches high, 14 inches wide

Celebrate with us and Karen Nicol for the Chinese New Year!
Karen Nicol has been creating her particular brand of animal magic for some time. She has embroidered swans, sheep and snowy polar bears but has recently turned her attention to our closest relatives – primates. Her exhibition, Singerie, the French word for ‘monkey trick’, explores an artistic genre first found in Egypt and made popular in 18th Century French Rococo art. bit.ly/1gBfvFA

“Hollywood’s favourite photographer”. Tyler Sheilds is famous for working with L.A’s ‘hippest’ and producing work that loudly claims to be ‘subversive’. His current show at the Maddox gallery in Mayfair London draws a crude parallel between the rich and famous today and the court of Marie Antoinette.

Dale KearneyWe changed our prices here at monkeysandmore.com We raised them a little to include free shipping on orders over $50 and it has greatly increased our sales. If your going to increase you have to have a good incentive to raise them...just my opinion

Gina Vermillion BoulangerI raised my prices and added free shipping on those items. Not only did I get no complaints, but my target market shifted.

At Home With Words ShopI lowered my shipping prices. Once I had a a few sales to get a real idea of the costs, I realized I could lower them since that might have been putting people off. Can't say it's made a difference. It's fairly recent, the shop is still new-ish, and don't have huge numbers of sales to compare.
