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, painstaking rendering of a red-tailed hawk, complete with curved beak, mottled breast, and red tail feathers.

"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.

"A wonderful little friend! Lovely details"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Harry the Hairy Woodpecker is already perched on the frame of a work of art in my office. I decided I needed some downstairs birds... my other Mauricio birds are upstairs. He is quite comfortable visiting with my Robin made by Mauricio that arrived today, too. The wire feet to held them quite secure. These birds make wonderful gifts, too.
