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!

I have ordered many of his pieces in the past. This one was much larger than I expected with great details, even down to individual petals.

I purchased this magnificent piece of art for my brother-in-law who is a drummer and music instructor. He actually loves it. This was the second piece of art I purchased by this Artisan, and since then have purchased several more for other family members and friends.
