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 and meticulously decorated depiction of the world's smallest owl, the elf owl, complete with brownish-grey coloring, a small beak, and a striated breast.

I purchased the cardinal for a friend and came back for the Indigo Bunting. Beautifully crafted. The colors are magnificent. It sits in my kitchen and it is very realistic. Love the birds from this artist.
