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.

"What a master artist and craftsman!"

I now have 6 of Mr. Morales bird sculptures. Each are unique, beautiful and capture the spirit and beauty of living birds. Looking at them, I feel Im in that privileged moment observe them just before they fly off. Thank you for the amazing work you do.

"Red-Tailed Hawk looks so real! Love It!"

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
