Details

Mauricio Morales crafts a small ceramic bird figurine that features exquisite hand painted detailing. "The process for making these small animals was something I learned when I was small...since then it has become a passion of mine," says the Guatemalan artisan, adding that the bird sculpture is made for, "...all of those who love birds." He starts by mixing the clay and carefully shaping the figure, and then he adds aluminum legs and feet. After the bird is fired, he sands it, mixes his own colors and paints the figurine. The result is a charming, painstaking rendering of a red-tailed hawk, complete with curved beak, mottled breast, and red tail feathers.

Thank you, Mauricio. My friend loves her little bird of happiness. I couldnt resist buying it for her... She is such a lover of birds. I have purchased many of Mauricios birds -- some for gifts and several for myself. Each one a true work of art.

"Gorgeous Colors and Nice Feel"

With the metal legs, I can easily attach the piece anywhere I want without using anything to hold it. A great addition to my balcony. I hope the colors will not suffer from being outside.
