Three clay whistles by Riccardo Biavati in the shape of owls and leavesSymbols of universal values, his characters are nested in stoves, lairs or windswept trees, looking out at the world with graceful irony.

Riccardo Biavati's playful owl-shaped whistles are the contemporary heroes of a long-running tradition of clay whisperers, their songs adding to the magic of art.

Indeed, the artist is one of the last makers of clay whistles, a traditional craft typical of the Italian Northeast, whose origin is lost in ancient history.
