With every figurine, there is the challenge for Herend's painters to honor and herald what the sculptor has accomplished in form. Here, after careful study of the subject in white, section by section, layer by layer, the artist has applied a complex painting style befitting this crested beauty, one of the largest and most memorable forest birds in North America. Alas, even noble birds like the pileated woodpecker can't escape the everyday, such as feeding a pair of very ...Read more of post

As with most creatives, Herend's artists have an inherent restlessness to perpetually innovate in the pursuit their craft. With this achingly elegant swan, they have employed a striking, new painting technique to capture the airy, delicate composition of a bird's feather. To heighten the swan's allure further, the face has been painted in a natural coloration which gives full expression to the haunting beauty of this figurine.

The golden hour of daylight and the majestic scenery of his forest home are reflected in the burnished coat of Herend's stately moose. A creative scene within a scene, the artists at Herend have rendered a remarkably rich composition using just two colors.

Two ducks pose in their feathery finest with alternating colors of yellow, green, brown and terracotta fishnet offset by dramatic gold highlights. Their coy expression could be attributed to the fact that they know a secret: the logs they are sitting on aren't real. Herend's artists have done a masterful job painting in the faux bois style and only a close inspection reveals the true porcelain composition.

It is immediately identifiable by its glamorous plumage; however, even if presented only in silhouette, the wood duck would still be recognizable by its unique shape consisting of a famously boxy, crested head and long, broad tail. Luckily, Herend's figurine features all dimensions and kaleidoscopic colors of this perching waterfowl and combines multiple patterns and painting techniques to expertly capture this North American beauty.

This female pheasant seems to be keeping a wary eye on her surroundings although her motivation to run away has been tempered by her desire to show off her beautifully painted plumage - done Herend-style. Her normal cinnamon color takes on an exotic air when combined with pops of 24K gold and a fish scale treatment on her wings that hints at the pheasant's Asian origins.

Summer green has given way to an autumnal explosion of color on this climbing vine which means this bird will soon depart its summer home for southern destinations. This feathered beauty was a shy resident, preferring to hop around behind the cover of leaves and branches, but the neighborhood got to know it nonetheless through its daily songs. When Mother Nature awakens in the spring and restores the bird's sanctuary, the village knows the bird's lullabies will soon ...Read more of post

While this mother & baby are a North American subspecies of the brown bear, they are more commonly known as grizzly bears. As to the origin of their name, the bears can thank none other than Lewis & Clark whose journals mention a "grisley bear" no doubt referring to these majestic symbols of the wild whose grizzled appearance is caused by the long guard hairs on their backs and shoulders frequently having white tips. The fur of these bears is often dark...Read more of post

The American Kestrel may be North America's smallest raptor but by no means does that diminish its abilities as a hunter as evidenced by those impressive talons. What it lacks in size the kestrel makes up in coloration since it is considered the most colorful of raptors. Often found perched on a wire or a pole, the kestrel will pump its long tail to keep its balance while scanning for an unfortunate grasshopper. The sculptors and painters at Herend had no desire to ...Read more of post

Mother nature perfected him and now Herend's artists have immortalized the famous little shorebird often found darting along the water's edge doing his memorable bobbing dance. With stilt-like legs designed for standing in water and a long beak ideal for digging for coastal creatures, the sandpiper is a common presence along beaches (but can actually be found anywhere with water). In the hands of Herend's artists, the sandpiper makes his debut in dramatic fashion from ...Read more of post
