Three Living Room Ocarinas


These three instruments represent the experimentation with building, glazing, and firing ocarinas (flutes) over the period of 2013, 2014, and 2015. The shadowbox idea is the direction I plan to take for displays, although the lighting may need some help by a minor adjustment in the box depth. Friends here on the CAC Forum might recognize the "Witch is Dead" themed piece in the middle as a spin-off of a Community Challenge project.

Thanks Joseph!  These pretty much stay on the wall.  Sometimes a friend/visitor will ask about how they sound and I'll give a demo, but they are still fairly primitive instruments and sound a bit airy.

Oddly enough, the first time I showed ocarinas like this in a gallery, a lady walked in and bought 3, saying that she could just envision a time when her grandchildren might sit around in a circle and make music using these instruments. It was also the first time I realized that there might actually be a market for these things :)
