Whistlers

A little whistle. A Latgalian with brown feathers, white tattoos and a sticker. Makes four sounds. Single.

I'm a potter in the fifth generation and I've been making these little whistles since I was little, since I can remember myself. Every bird turns out differently so I can surely say that each bird has its own song.

Every svilpaunieks I decorated with a traditional Latvian symbol. Their variety reflects our rich culture. Let my starling svilpaunieks be its messenger to the world!

I'm inspired by the well-known Latvian folk song: "Run little oriole, howler of hills, call me back home, the traveller of the world…" My svilpaunieks is this oriole flying in the world as a memory from Latvia!
