Obsessed with Clay Whistles

I’ve uploaded these whistles which I call “Bead Whistles” to my flickr page.  When you get there, you can click on each whistle to get a closer view.  These are all approx. 40  mm in length, and started off with a 20 mm ball of clay.

 Each whistle has its own voice.  Some can be blown with just a mild exhale of air, others require a definite puff, and most are somewhat in between, but all make sound.

These look great on a ribbon or a leather cord.  I have about 20 more that I’m currently glazing and hopefully will put in the kiln over the weekend.  We’ll see.  Until then, enjoy looking at these.

  1. Thanks, Cindi, I have about 15 more that I'm firing today and about 10 more to still glaze. Then I'm going to make more in a porcelain clay.

    I'm definitely going overboard with these. lol! They are SO fun to make!
