Details

The patient leans forward and gazes into the lens while the doctor conducts the eye exam. Both are shaped from sparkplugs with arms and legs of metal bars. Nuts and bolts, rings and die cut scraps become ophthalmologic equipment and the whimsical figures stand on a die plate. Armando Ramírez transforms castoff auto parts into art.

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

"It was a hit!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I purchased this for an optometrist friends birthday. It arrived in a timely manner, was well-packaged (the premium gift wrap was also really nice), the piece was well-made and it looked very much like the example. My friend loved it and has it on his office desk now. Im happy I was able to support a skilled artist and will look for more to buy in the future

"sport fan of soccer"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I am going give this as a birthday present to my nephew who since a very young age played this sport and was even in a special soccer team and traveled to Germany among other places. He now lives in the U.S. but his love for soccer has become stronger. This is the fourth sculpture I have purchased from Armando Ramirez; they are in a special place at the home. (Two were for my husband, the cyclist and the photographer. His true passions. He has them on his desk and since he works from home (uses zoom) others see them and are amazed. He says thank you, Ramiro!.

"metal in motion!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

With what Id see as a random assortment of nuts and bolts, Armando perceives the potential of art. His ability to create sculpture with such life and movement is an amazing feat of engineering as well as art; his art helps me see with different eyes.
