Whistlers

When I was a child, I had only few toys. I still remember them as well as the magical sounds from the hand-polished bird. I hope it will be a warm memory to someone from me and Latvia.

Similar to Latvians, my svilpaunieks is modest but strong and unique. It's a child of nature and you can even hear it in its song when it brings the light and scares away the darkness.

I create each and every svilpaunieks using the oldest ceramics technique from the Neolithic Era – hand-building. Now you know that every bird for each guest of our Presidency will be special and unique.

Sky is where a bird belongs. When you look up and see its silhouette, it feels like its swimming in an ocean of clouds. Our bird is made of clay extracted from the ground and burnt in the fire. In this way 4 elements meet in a charm and the air travelling through it creates the sound of life.
