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 exacting depiction of a peregrine falcon complete with blue-grey coloring, mottled breast, and distinctive yellow hooked beak.

"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.

"Stunning little work of art!"

Thank you Mauricio for this stunning little work of art. I had purchased a different little bird for a friend and decided I needed one for myself. I am a Bowling Green Falcon... so this was a perfect choice. Always a joy when my Novica box arrives!

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.

Best Uses

  • Scatter them around like they are peeking around corners or watching the other birds
