"Ceramic Christmas Tree Ornaments"

These ornaments are absolutely beautiful. I purchased them because of their beauty but also because of the story I listened to about the artist. I gave some as gifts and some we kept and they will become treasured traditional keepsakes.

"Owl be talking to you!"

These two owls are irresistibly! They look so chatty, dont they?! Just looking at them makes me smile. I am making them my spirit animal! They are right next to another Novica product; a two sided cat! I just got a lovely porcelain Robin bird for my birthday. The five of them are near me on my side table. A round Robin. Thats an old term for people seated around a table. They remind me of parrots bopping around and it makes me laugh. If Jose Arriola reads this, I love the birds so much! Thank you for your artistry.

Best Uses

  • They are ornamental so they don't do much but I could almost swear she winked at me!

"Ornaments"

I bought these last Christmas to put on my mini tree. Unique, and its hard to choose which piece is my favorite. Its a toss-up between the mango and aguacate! Thank you José.

More substantial and pretty than I expected. And I loved being able to show my grandchildren the video showing how they are made.

"Stunning"

These are so beautiful. I moved to another continent and where I live now, there are no hummingbirds. So this is a way for me to keep a little bit of the spirit of these beautiful animals. I love these ornaments, they are very delicate and beautifully crafted. They are also very light.
