"Hummingbirds are a daily feature in our gardens, that's why I combined the image of the bird with the flowers and colors of Guatemalan gardens. What I like about hummingbirds is that they seem to be full of energy, they're beautiful and yet delicate," confides José Arriola. The talented artisan handcrafts the ornaments of ceramic and paints each one with acrylics with different themes. The six ornaments hangs from bright red ribbons, and the set arrives in a traditional cotton pouch woven on a foot loom.

"Bright and beautiful hummingbirds"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The hummingbird squadron is bright, beautiful and charming. Wonderful to hang on a Christmas tree or in a kitchen window (which is where I currently display my little hummers). The art work is wonderful and the packaging and gift wrap are great. The package arrived when expected and in excellent shape. The only suggestion I would have to the creator of these wonderful little ornaments is that it would be great if the painted designs were on both sides of the ornament. I have my hummingbirds displayed in a window which allows the wind to blow them around and I only wish they had the gorgeous painted design on both sides of the ornament for that reason. But these are such a great little squadron anyway! Cheers to the artist and to Novica !

He wishes to help this tradition continue and he teaches anyone in his community who has an interest in learning.

Jose Arriola has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $450 and the most recent for $2550. Proceeds were used to purchase paints and materials for his ceramics to continue production.

Jose's beautiful work and his preservation of cultural techniques have brought him recognition in national exhibitions, and his municipality even created a video showing the process of how he creates his figurines.

Jose's children are all grown but but he does provide financial support for the education of one person outside of his family and he occasionally supports other children's school expenses.

Jose has been dealing with diabetes for over 17 years. His condition has caused many problems for him, but currently he is able to control it and enjoy his life.
