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!"

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!
