Details

Mauricio Morales crafts a petite ceramic bird figurine that features exquisite hand painted detailing. "The process for making these small creatures was something I learned when I was small. Since then, it has become a passion of mine," says the Guatemalan artisan, adding that the 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.

"Great gift!"

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!

"Merry Christmas to me! Love him"

My Cardinal arrived before Christmas so I just put the empty box under the tree. I placed him on top of the antique East Lake secretary that was from the ancestral farm house. The cardinal has watch over my dining room. I have Mauricio birds in several rooms of my house. I love each and every one. I have purchased many as gifts for friends, too.
