Hi! I'm Caro, a Canadian (Quebec) ocarina maker. Playing flute and cello for several years, the quality of the sound is the most important factor while making ocarinas. I also really like to improve the aesthetic of the finish and make unique looking instruments.

Being mostly an artist, I make only few handmade ocarinas at a time and my ocarinas are not chain-produced. I use a mold to keep a uniform outer shape.

I make transverse ocarinas, pendants and sculptural ocarinas. I also make solid silver ocarinas (pendants only). I have tenor ocarinas for sale on my website (8-holes and 12-holes) and you can submit special requests to have a specific ocarina (dragon shaped ocarinas, silver etc).

All my ocarinas are made out of white clay (26F) one by one and fired at cone 2. I also like to decorate them using raku and shellac (this time I use straw firing and horsehair raku).

Hi Caro!


That is a very nice website! I don't want to sound nit-picky, but I would suggest you to replace expressions like "ocarina in the key of C" with "ocarina in C" (just get rid of the word "key").

Hey Caro, welcome to the forum!
Ive always enjoyed seeing your work, including the lovely dragon sculptures :)
I look forward to seeing more to come in the future (especially your work with the horse hair firing, that stuff is gorgeous!)
Best of luck!
