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.
