Details

Mexican artisan Armando Ramirez transforms recycled sheet metal, auto parts, and other hardware into a beautiful sculpture. A graceful hummingbird--made of intricately cut sheet metal for the wings and tail, a gear for the head, and gear chain for the underside of the body--drinks nectar from a flower supported by a stem made of rebar with a hammered sheet metal leaf, standing on a round base. This impressive sculpture is a beautiful way to celebrate both nature's beauty and the importance of protecting it through recycling.

I got this vase for my husband and I;. It looked so different and beautiful in the picture. But it doesnt do it justice because we couldnt believe how much more stunning and breathtaking. There is something so special about having one of a kind hand made gift made with passion and love. They are not just artisans, they are artists who make this earth a a more environmentally friendly reminder of how each one of us can learn to preserve our earth.
