Details

The catcher crouches with outstretched glove as the batter prepares to swing. The excitement of baseball inspires Armando Ramírez. He fashions the figures from discarded pieces of wire and sparkplugs. Metal bits left from a die cutter become the glove, heads, feet and home plate.

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

"Incredible Workmanship!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This was such a perfect purchase as a gift for my boss. He grew up working in his dads service station AND he is a baseball buff! Not only does this sculpture combine the two but the quality is just superb! So glad I didnt have it gift wrapped so I could view before presenting! I hope to order additional pieces by the artist, as these are so unusual in design and craftsmanship!

Im always blown away by the talent and detail in Armandos sculpture! This stag is no exception. I love the creativity and all the detail of each part. I have several of his sculptures now and each of them is wonderful. My stag looks perfect next to my antler lamp.
