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 precise depiction of a female cardinal complete with red-orange bill and reddish crest.

"Rememberance Gift"

Gave this as a rememberance gift and my sister loved it. I have bought several different birds as gifts and a couple for myself because they are very realistic, very well made. Mauricio pays very close attention to detail. I have not been disappointed.

My sister-in-law adored this. Her lovely home attracts all sorts of birds, who gather at her bird feeder daily. This was a nice way to post tribute to them!

"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.

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.
