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 minutely detailed depiction of a roadrunner complete with blueish skin around the eye area and a crown covered in small white spots.

"This is a really cute roadrunner bird!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I lived in Phoenix when I was much younger, and I loved seeing the roadrunner birds. I still love them, and this figurine by Mr. Morales is perfect and I am adding it to my collection of pretty birds he has made. My thanks to him (again).

"A birthday gift to me from my Red Lored Amazon!!!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

OK! I needed an excuse to buy it! And Im glad I did! Some have said that my Red Lored Amazon may be a hybrid. All I know is the statue you made looks just like him, right down to the stance and expression! It is well made and beautiful!!! Mauricio, please make a statue of an Orange Wing Amazon! My OWA guy is 55 yrs young. Ready to purchase if u can make one! I have so many of your birds on my list but REALLY want an OWA.
