Forum rules


In order to give ocarina makers a chance to edit their own information and add news and updates in the opening post of a thread dedicated to their business we ask you to follow the following rule:


If you are making a thread about another ocarina brand, only post factual information in the opening post. If that ocarina brand has a representative on Little Geese: The Ocarina Forum, it would be best to let them create a topic for themselves. Otherwise, if you want to post your opinion or a review, you can create a new post directly after making the first post to do so. Keep in mind that the first post of any thread in this subforum may be completely deleted to be used by the ocarina brand representative that is being discussed in the thread.


If you are an ocarina maker or a representative of an ocarina brand and wish to have a topic dedicated to your business, feel free to start your own, unless it already exists, in which case, please contact the user Bas or send an e-mail to , so that we can arrange it so that you can have the opening post.

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").
