Details

Intent on his work, an artist puts brush to canvas, carefully selecting colors from the palette in one hand. Armando Ramirez resurrects discarded auto parts and metal, giving them a new purpose as art. A spark plug body, galvanized wire, die-cut scraps and screws all ingeniously fulfill distinct roles in this original sculpture.

Ramírez does not give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.

"Perfect Gift for our Art Teacher!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a beautiful, well-made piece of art. My children gave this to their art teacher, and she absolutely loved it. She loved it for its sheer beauty, but also for the story behind how it was made. And I couldnt agree more--I love this artisan!

"It is wonderfully made, and very clever"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I was initially drawn to this item because I m both an owner and a lover of standard poodles. I m surprised I don t see more of them than I do since they are so distinctive looking. But when this piece arrived I was quite pleased with how well designed and put together it was— just like my real live poodle! So it s got a nice spot in a very important room.

"So nice, I kept it for myself"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Originally, I bought this Don Quixote sculpture to decorate a guest suite for someone who enjoys this Cervantes character. But it is so well-made and attractive that I keep it in my foyer so that I can see it every day, instead! Substantial weight, sturdy, as well as, artistic. Highly recommend!
