Love-love-love these - all 6 designs are beautifully painted with vibrant colors. These are not just for Christmas, I will display them year-round maybe with the moon ornaments I plan to purchase.

This beautiful mobile hangs over my dinning area. I see it everyday and it never ceases to give me joy as I look at those darling hummingbirds. Each one is in a different color and hanging in a different position. Love the mobile!

"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!

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.
