Birds carved from precious stones by Peter Muuller
Birds carved from precious stones. Art work by Peter Muuller. All birds are carved from such stones as Aquamarine, Amethyst, Tourmaline, Agate, and etc. Talented stone carver, jeweler and artist Peter Muuller was born in 1952 in Luzern, Switzerland. He lived in several foreign countries and came to Brazil in 1979, where he started the production of bird carvings of precious stones in 1984. Married to Teja Vroom in 1987, they both started to participate in the international fairs in 1990. Peter has the most advanced carving shop in Brazil where he and his crew are always improving the quality of their creations. Nature teaches Peter and his carving-crew to create these beautiful hand-crafted bird carvings out of natural colored precious stones from all over the world.
Each of hand-carved by Peter Muuller bird is unique, as there aren’t two identical carved birds, and each one is unique, the same as in nature. The bases are all carefully hand-picked out of tons of different sorts of mineral specimen, like Tourmaline from 7 different mines, and Crystal from 4 different mines, and many kinds of other rare stones. Some even over 40 million years old that still can be found in the soil of the country where Peter lives now: Brazil.
