Hand Polished Marble Ocarina

* Sweet Potato Flute in Terra Cotta Red
* Alto model. Approx. 6" long
* Soft cord necklace included.

-PLAYING-
Fully chromatic.
8 Holes, over one octave range.
Easy to play for adults & children down to age 4.

-SOUND-
Clear, full bodied tone. My Ocarinas have a little more breath
& a little less sharpness than most others. More of a flute sound
than a recorder.

-FEEL-
Very smooth and soft on the fingers.
The beveled tone holes add an ergonomic factor that
helps proper finger placement & wards off fatigue.

-LOOK-
Hand polished to a satin finish.
That's not glitter or metallic flakes that are sparkling,
it's the natural marble shining away.

-DURABILITY-
Totally water & weatherproof.
Harder & more chip resistant than a clay or ceramic Ocarina.
It passes the drop test of a 4 foot fall onto a tile or cement floor.

-MAINTENANCE-
Just some soap & water once in a while.
Don't bother with any furniture polish or wax.
You will deaden the brilliance and depth of the marble.

* 100% eco & people friendly instrument.
* No crystalline silica(cancer causing).
* All natural pigment.

I LOVE making these. I hope you love playing them.
I always wanted to do something in marble.
But, I had in mind things like the David or Venus De Milo…..
Well, I guess this is as close as I'll get!

Frequently asked questions about WorldWinds

Keep it from drying out! They have been treated with Walnut Oil.
Maintain & clean when needed. If it's dirty or feels dry, then it's time.

Just a drop on a paper towel. Rub in until shiny, with no streaks.
Twist the towel into a rope to get the insides.
This will clean and protect in one step.
Clean with soap & water, inside & out with a towel or sponge.
No abrasive scrubby pads.
As a father of 3, I can say that they are. My shop is in my home,
so I take that very seriously. All materials used are non-toxic and
Earth friendly.
Yes. I pride myself in having a 0% waste workshop.
All bamboo, wood and marble dust is returned to the Earth
to fertilize my bamboo groves.
Everything I make can go outside. But, nothing I make should
stay outside, unless you want it to look like your old wooden fence
or deck. The expansion and contraction of outdoor weather, along
with rain & sun will weather your instrument just like everything else.

If it gets wet, just dry it off with a paper towel.

If it gets very cold or very hot, allow it to return to a normal
temperature slowly.
It's a simplified version of the 'protection from harm" sign. The larger middle line is supposed to be an arrow. And the smaller lines are protecting you from it. I hope it does so for you.
Yes. You have two options for getting the
in-between notes. When trying to lower a
note, add a finger or two below that note
after skipping one hole. In raising a note,
with the the lowest finger currently used,
roll it off the hole a bit. The note will
raise anywhere from a half step to a whole
step. The beveled holes help this technique.
With a little practice you'll be able to hit
any note you want.
