Then it happened. While the whistle-makers were engrossed in their work, a student started making a large hollow bank by draping clay into 2 large wooden salad bowls (not the bowls you eat the salad out of, the ones you SERVE the salad from).

It wasn’t easy, of course. It took persistence, daring, physics and the willingness to get clay on your lips. In fact, it took a team of experts to collaboratively produce not one, but TWO giant clay whistles with two distinct sounds.
