"Hummingbirds are a daily feature in our gardens, that's why I combined the image of the bird with the flowers and colors of Guatemalan gardens. What I like about hummingbirds is that they seem to be full of energy, they're beautiful and yet delicate," confides José Arriola. The talented artisan handcrafts the ornaments of ceramic and paints each one with acrylics with different themes. The six ornaments hangs from bright red ribbons, and the set arrives in a traditional cotton pouch woven on a foot loom.

"Bright and beautiful hummingbirds"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The hummingbird squadron is bright, beautiful and charming. Wonderful to hang on a Christmas tree or in a kitchen window (which is where I currently display my little hummers). The art work is wonderful and the packaging and gift wrap are great. The package arrived when expected and in excellent shape. The only suggestion I would have to the creator of these wonderful little ornaments is that it would be great if the painted designs were on both sides of the ornament. I have my hummingbirds displayed in a window which allows the wind to blow them around and I only wish they had the gorgeous painted design on both sides of the ornament for that reason. But these are such a great little squadron anyway! Cheers to the artist and to Novica !

If you want a handmade jet, this is it. This mobile is beautifully made and the care the artist took to execute this is obvious. We hung it by our front door. Its great. We love it!

"Hummingbird Heaven"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love how beautifully these hummingbirds are painted in bright colors! I have it hanging outside next to my hummingbird feeders. It?s so realistic that hummingbirds often hover near it to take a look! It makes a gentle, lovely sound in the breeze. Thank you to the artist for their handiwork and for the joy that this hummingbird brings me!

"Beautiful hummingbirds!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

A lovely flock of birds! I have purchased many of Joses clay birds. We are keeping one of these (I let my husband pick). The rest will be given as gifts to friends. Always a joy to buy from Jose. Novica is the first place I look for gifts.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Jose creates the most beautiful ceramic ornaments and figurines. His family has lived in Antigua for more than 100 years and he takes great pride in practicing the same ceramic techniques his ancestors used. He wishes to help this tradition continue and he teaches anyone in his community who has an interest in learning.

Jose Arriola has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $450 and the most recent for $2550. Proceeds were used to purchase paints and materials for his ceramics to continue production.

Jose's beautiful work and his preservation of cultural techniques have brought him recognition in national exhibitions, and his municipality even created a video showing the process of how he creates his figurines.

Jose's children are all grown but but he does provide financial support for the education of one person outside of his family and he occasionally supports other children's school expenses.

Jose has been dealing with diabetes for over 17 years. His condition has caused many problems for him, but currently he is able to control it and enjoy his life.

Jose provides employment to several people within his community.

Several universities have recognized Jose for his work.
