Details

This sci-fi take on one of Africa's most singular creatures will make for a very cool desk partner or an excellent conversation piece nestled amongst your shelves. Armando Ramirez handcrafts it from a combination of recycled auto and bicycle metal parts and gives it a rough, rustic finish for added grit.

The Mexican artisan has turned his childhood pastime of crafting toys into an art form that has allowed him to exploit his ingenuity and his creativity. He uses scrap metal from auto shops and bicycles to create sculptures, decor pieces, and even chess sets. The popularity of his creations has enabled Armando to start a workshop and dedicate himself full-time to his artistic pursuits.

"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.
