Chen Ching’s new line of ocarinas is a fresh twist on the shapes and colors found in nature. These ocarinas are his interpretation of rock formations blended with modern art. In spite of their irregular shapes, the artist has incorporated comfort into the design of each ocarina. The groves on these ocarinas fit the fingers perfectly for a uniquely ergonomic design. The sound of these ocarinas is pure and responsive.
