Clay Whistles


Part of our Summer Art Plan was to make clay instruments.  We have made shakers and now...clay whistles.  It took some experimenting, but we got the technique down and they work.  Yes, big smiles all around when we heard the whistle!  Now we need to get all of these instruments fired.  Soon I will post pictures of the fired instrument in all of their glory!

This is so cool! How did you make them so they would whistle?

Hi Bethany.....yes the clay whistles are super cool. We followed some really awesome directions and I might add we had several failed attempts. But once we got the hang of it, it was very addicting. Can't wait to fire them. We have been out of town so it won't be for another couple of weeks yet (need to fill the kiln up!).
