  1. Try asking around local ceramic artists and also colleges/universities, with work as good as yours I doubt you will have any trouble convincing people to help you fire it.
  2. Thanks for the comments, I'm aiming for a base pitch (chamber tonic) of C a=440, do you have any pictures of your own ocarinas? Ocarinas can be played as both a transposing or non-transposing instrument, the note intervals are generally the same. The base pitch of an ocarina is primarily determined by chamber volume and blowing pressure, the former must be sized so that the ocarina plays in pitch without excessive breath. It is possible to vary this somewhat with sound hole size, or by drilling a tuning hole, however they do reduce the maximum achievable range and weaken the high notes. No
  3. Hello everyone, new here. I make ocarinas, a type of musical instrument originating from Italy, currently working on getting them into concert pitch, a rather tedious matter of getting the chamber volume spot on... Anyway, here is one of my fairly recent instruments, I don't have many glazed yet on account of not having a kiln and firing taking for ever. Anyone else make ocarinas?
