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 an artist!"

I gifted Rustic Artist at Work to a family member and fellow artist. Mr. Ramirezs work is innovative -- he reuses metal parts in his creations -- and always impressive. Whether purchased for myself or as a gift, I am always impressed and happy to give or display in my own space. Thank You!

"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!

"My new favorite piece of art."

This is a unique piece of art that has a lovely function. It is beautifully made and I have received many compliments. The mirror was packaged so well for international shipping that it would have been impossible to break. Mr. Armando Ramirez is a very talented artist and respects Mother Earth by recycling items not needed any longer for their intended function.
