Whistlers

I'm a birdie from Jūrmala - the city by the sea. You would think that the seagulls are the only birds roaming the place, however looking closer in the shrubs and bushes, you will notice abundance of many little birds - and I'm one of them.

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.

When I was little I saw a film about Latgalian ceramics and to this day I still remember the scene with a little boy playing svilpaunieks. 20 years later I, already as a potter, saw the film again and recognised my teacher – the little boy with the whistle. Let the svilpaunieks bring you array of pleasant surprises!

It's a gift to see the joy in child's eyes. If this little svilpaunieks can put a smile on youngster’s face, it’s a value. Spread the happiness!
