Whistlers

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!

This clay bird is not something to put on a shelf to collect dust on. You can play the whistle by covering and uncovering the holes and creating archaic melodies of 3-4 notes which will take you back to the olden days.

God took clay and created human. Ancient Latvian in-between making clay pots created svilpaunieks - just to brighten up someone's day. And to this day we still do it. Is it a tradition? Certainly! But it's also a reminder not to forget to be happy while doing the important things!

I create things that are practical and unpractical from different ceramic materials. Svilpaunieks belongs to practical ones, of course, as it can sing and make people smile. I wish everyone to have each day full of happiness and new experiences!
