Mr. Ramirezs sculptures are amazing and unique. The work and the artistry involved just blows my mind. This is the second Baker I purchased. The first one was a Christmas gift for my daughters teacher and mentor in baking breads. My daughter liked it so much that she kept it for herself. What especially wowed her was that it is made using upcycled metal from motor vehicles. I am looking forward to giving Steve, the baker of fine quality breads, this awesome gift. He will absolutely love it.
