Mini Bird Whistle Ornament

Bird Whistle Ornament

These adorable mini bird whistle ornaments are handcrafted from clay by William and his family. William lives in Masaya, Nicaragua. He began working in clay at age 15 and has continued his craft for 24 years. William's beautiful painted bird whistles (silvatos) help support his family.

Working alongside him at their home are his wife Karla and daughter Bethsayda, who paints most of the whistles by hand with a delicate and artistic touch. Bethsayda is in her last year of high school and plans on a career in computing. With very simple tools like a pencil or a pen, William does the crafting of the bird forms, while his wife helps in a variety of capacities.

This home-based business has prospered over the years and allowed William to hire assistants when he is busy, thus providing jobs for friends! This job has allowed William's family to have sufficient food and to provide for their children’s college education.

FMSC partners with Flutemaker Ministries to help feed FMSC meals to children who were formerly living in a garbage dump in Cascabel. Your ornament helps provide nutritious meals to children in Nicaragua!
