French designer Pierre Charrié took in the interpretation of traditional singing vessels of Peru with his new collection of Pan Whistling pieces. The range is comprised of a selection of musical jugs made from ceramic -- the material is used in order to produce sounds that call for healing properties or to contact spirits. Pierre Charrié explains that the concept was drawn from his deep-rooted interest in ancient objects, especially sound objects.

To help with the colorful collection, the designer tapped Victor Mauro from the design studio ça va faire du bruit for help in creating the sound production. When water is pouring out or moving around in the jug, the air it creates evokes a simplistic musical note. In terms of its exterior structure, it boasts the shape of a bird as a nod to its traditional design. It also has a streaking texture to recall feathers and add more water movement within its form.
