Clay Whistles.

CLAY WHISTLES. Janet Moniet. P.O. Box 273, Plainfield, New Hampshire 03781 : The Whistle Press, 1989. Illustrated, 56 pp., spiral bound.

This small publication describes an uncommon, but interesting, ceramic process. Subtitled "the voice of clay," the author has written and illustrated the making of clay whistles in both generic and creative form. The necessary tools, materials and techniques are ably illustrated, as are methods of forming simple musical instruments in clay. (The ocarina is described as a whistle you can play songs on.) Certainly not on the basics of clay booklist, but of worth if you are looking for alternatives to pinchpots.
