"Hummingbirds in my window."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I just received my hummingbird mobile in the mail from Guatemala. Each individual bird was carefully wrapped, with the beaks folded down and the strings tied around cardboard paper so that they did not get tangled in the mail. I love the way it looks hanging in my window. The details are lovely, the colors bright, and the overall look is joyful and full of life. Gracias Jose Arriola!

"this is a celebration of color"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love it and my favorite part is how carefully considered the color combinations are. Each bird is a mix of the most beautiful shades; similarly colored birds are never next to each other, and even the strings (which are more than one color) appear selected to complement the shade of each bird. One thing you might want to know is that because of how its packaged, the top two birds are not yet tied onto the mobile, and you will tie them on yourself. The topmost string is pretty short, so if you are giving this to someone arthritic, you may want to help. It is a beautiful piece of art and its impossible to not feel happy looking at it.

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!

"Hummingbird Mobile is beautiful"

It is a great colorful addition to my patio where I feed and enjoy the real life jewels. Once it turns cold here in Colorado I?ll move the mobile to my bathroom window where I have several other hummers. Thank you.

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.
