Whistlers

This svilpaunieks has found its way to you to start your tale with a tune. With 3 different sounds it will be the echo of your inner world and together you'll create a better world even if it's just for a little bit. It's worth a try!

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!

My home and workshop is on top of a hill. Often we experience winds blowing from all four directions. So, naturally my svilpaunieks has a sleek shape with a slender neck so it can withstand the wind, fly and reach faraway lands.

You can find svilpaunieks in an old tale. Nobody knows how it has started and when it will end. When you blow the svilpaunieks, you can hear that once upon a time… and now it's your turn to continue the tale because the magic whistle is in your hands!
