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 precise depiction of a robin complete with brownish-grey plumage, black head, and orange breast.

"Incredible artistry!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Not only do I collect bird figurines, but the robin is my late mothers bird totem. I bought this and Cardinal from this artist as that is my late fathers bird totem. These two pieces are so beautiful—they are a heart warming reminder of my parents. They sit together on a shelf, reunited and safe within my home. Thank you for such fine work.

"A new little friend! So expressive"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

My little Robin friend - whom I named Iadilla - arrived today and is perched on top of a shadow box framed artwork in my office -- visiting with Harry the Hairy Woodpecker who arrived today as well. I really love Mauricios birds. They make perfect gifts too. The daughters of a friend of mine will eventually get my birds made by Mauricio.

"This peregrine falcon is really special!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have purchased three lovely birds from Mr. Morales, and I love them all. They are very carefully painted and look so real the wire legs and feet look real too. You can tell he really likes birds by the way he paints them. I have them all around my apartment, like they are peaking around corners or keeping an eye on the other birds. So cute! I plan to buy more in time. Thanks Mr. Morales.

I have purchased a few birds from Mr. Morales, and I love them all. They are very carefully painted and look so real, you dont notice the wire legs and feet. You can tell he really likes birds by the way he paints them. I have them all around my apartment, like they are peaking around corners or keeping an eye on the other birds. So cute! I plan to buy a few more in time. Thanks Mr. Morales.
