Want a guy who’s always there for you, and really low maintenance? How about a 5’11” man of steel? Oops, that just slipped out! Office Man is NOT steel, but super-heavy 10-gauge recycled copper wire, with lighter gauge wire for face and shirt details. I hand-twisted him from individual pieces of wire -- no forms or molds - and believe me, he's tough. He’s signed in wire “rj11,” for ruth jensen and the year.

He wears a sport coat, collared shirt, belt, slacks, and casual shoes, and carries a cup of coffee (yours?) in his left hand. With a newspaper in his right hand, he could hail a taxi for you. He listens perfectly and never criticizes, and will gladly hold your coat over his arm, too. Since he’s made of copper, he’ll never rust, though he will eventually develop a dark patina, or even turn green if left outside under the right conditions. To keep him clean, just give him a flick with a feather duster, or put him in the shower if necessary.

AVAILABLE FOR LOCAL PICKUP ONLY (in the Twin Cities), unless CRATED SHIPPING (upwards of $600), US only, is arranged by convo BEFORE purchase. The shipping cost shown is JUST AN ESTIMATE; actual shipping charges will be by arrangement.
