Clay Whistles

clay whistles by you.

I took a clay whistle making workshop over the weekend and made a couple of whistles.   There are only 2 parts to the whistle, a hollow ball with a hole and a hollow tube.  You have to attach the two just right in order to get a peep out of it.  After the tube and ball are attached, you can decorate it anyway you like.  I still need to clean up these two (the one on the left is going to be a turtle) but you can see that the body of the turtle is the hollow ball and it’s attached to the hollow tube you blow through.

    these are so cute! the first thing that came to mind was my grandma calling out to her ‘whistle pigs’ in the yard. if I remember correctly, she was referring to groundhogs or some such. thanks for the jog down memory lane! they really are cute!
