Details

Recycling a variety of materials, Armando Ramírez depicts a surfo riding a sheet metal wave. A sparkplug forms the body and textured wire becomes arms and legs. The surfer wears baggie shorts made of metal screen while die cut scraps form the head and feet.

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

"Gift to Husband"

This gift depicted my husband, IT executive. He works hard and the detail of this recycled or upcycled gift was amazing workmanship. Kudos to the ingenuity and skill of the artist that created this!

"Perfect Gift!"

Ive bought several of Mr. Ramirezs pieces. They are perfect for the man in your life - but I would love one, too. So creative! And it surely isnt delicate, so no need to worry about it breaking.
