    ITEM#: 21125237

    After a hard day's work, friends meet at the cantina (bar) to talk about sports, life, etc. Armando Ramirez captures a scene from everyday life in a sculpture complete crafted with recycled metal pieces. Ramirez uses spark plugs for the bodies, iron wires for their arms and legs, and die pieces for the heads and feet. The glasses are crafted from nozzles taken off blow torches and the bar is sculpted with iron sheets.

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

    Story Behind the Art:
    Hi, I'm Armando Ramirez. All my life, I've lived in a town of artisans, and this has motivated me to create new art. As a child I enjoyed inventing toys, and soon yearned to create a unique style of art. Environmentally enamored, I now transform recycled goods.' At first, little by little, I began to craft figures from scraps and discarded mechanical parts - mostly from cars and bicycles. And so I began to create sculptures, soldering the pieces together and giving them shape as I imagined they should look. 'The process involves selecting recycled items that can be used. I separate them and soak them in a cleaning solution to remove any impurities. I solder them together until I achieve my design, then I give it a protective coat of glossy varnish. 'My sculptures are so successful that today I sell only my own works. They are rustic in nature, designed to recycle discarded objects by converting them into art. Thanks to the creativity that God gave me, today I have an enjoyable and better way of life. 'Because I believed and I put my trust in Novica and the people working there, I was able to formalize my craft and give continuity to something that was becoming a dream too difficult to achieve. Great and significant changes came to my life. Novica helped me take the last steps towards consolidating my workshop. Now I can plan projects because I have the financial stability to do so as well as enlarge my workshop so I may offer people in my community safe employment opportunities. 'Most importantly, I can buy the little presents I had long promised my two daughters. The financial solvency and the self-assurance I have gained from knowing that people around the world have accepted my work, has inspired me to learn more about art. I have enrolled in an art school where I can learn more about design and materials, because I know I am capable of discovering new recycling techniques I can share with the world.'

      I bought three of these sculptures. I gave one to my daughter, sister in law and a client. Everyone absolutely loves this Sculpture. It is very unique and a conversation piece. My sister in law has this sculpture displayed and said that all of her girlfriends commented on how beautiful and it has distinct characteristics. I will continue to buy this sculpture because it is such an impressive gift to give someone and very affordable!!
