A gift for my husband
My husband is crazy about bikes and it was a fitting gift for him on his birthday. He just loved it. The craftsmanship is beautiful
Focal point for my living room!
I love this piece, which is exactly as pictured and described. It has a rich patina and smooth finish, and everyone who has seen it remarks on it. I really appreciate the artist making old auto parts into something so beautiful!
Beautifully woven bedspread!
This bedspread is worth every penny! It is ample in size for a king sized bed, whereas most bedspreads are not. The fabric is a little heavy, but not too much, and gives one the sense of security when sleeping. The red color is very rich and looks elegant in our bedroom. I love the tassels and the workmanship is excellent. I will enjoy this purchase for many years!
Morneo Traditional handcrafted Mexican alebrije figures
"It's very satisfying for me to work on each piece, its details, the way the light and shadows fall on a design. Finally, I love to make people say, 'Wow!'"

Upcycled Car Parts Chess Set Artisan Crafted in Mexico, "Rustic Warriors"$299.99
Heavy, rustic figures do battle on the chess field, conjured by Armando Ramírez's limitless imagination. Combining art and function, Ramirez sculpts each piece from automobile parts -- even the heads of the bishops are made of NGK and AC DELCO spark plugs! One of the most creative chess sets on Novica, this work is perfect for the chess lover that likes a rustic aesthetic.
The interior of the chess board makes a clanging sound from the moving of welded materials, and each of the pieces exhibits its own unique nature and finishing, depending on the auto part used. The knight, queen and king are particular favorites, finely tuned and sculpted, and the pawns made of heavy bolts and round dies have a small and sturdy presence. Enjoy!
It is important to note that the finish is rustic, as intended by the artist.
Collectible Recycled Auto Parts Metal Sculpture, "Rustic Puma Helicopter"$259.99
Recycled auto parts and metal come together in a sculpted replica of a Puma helicopter thanks to the creative instinct of Mexican artist Armando Ramirez. He crafts the cabin with a half sphere of the type used in building construction, and thick wires are used to frame the windows. The carriage and seats are crafted with metal sheets and the gear stick is shaped from a thick wire. The blades are shaped from metal pieces discarded off a die machine and a half sphere. Ball bearings from a bus' electric system are transformed into the helicopter's tires and the fenders are shaped from rocker arms.
The top blades are removed for shipping.
Ramírez does not give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.
Zapotec cotton bedspread (King), "Oaxaca Morn"$259.99
By Carmen Ruiz, this radiant bedspread is woven by hand. Rich textures create arrows that flow amid stripes of thicker threads. She achieves its rich blue and golden yellow tones from natural dyes, and lavish macramé fringe surrounds the beautiful textile.
Eco Friendly Recycled Metal Torso of Venus Sculpture, "Natural Venus"$227.99
Fig leaves flow together to embrace the torso of a beautiful nude. Armando Ramírez crafts the image from recycled metal and an automobile part. Sheet metal scraps form the leaves while the sculpture stands on a piece salvaged from a clutch.
The artisan does not give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.
