I really like the art work on the single! I also really like the frosted straw-fire finish on some of the doubles. How do you do this?

I love those lacquered finishes. For the light colored straw-fired ocarinas, is that the color of the clay, or is that paint?

I made this frosted straw-fire pattern by using a kind of special clay produced in Taiwan, before kiln step I will do some unique processes ,it's hard for me to describe the details in English, in short, the pattern is not formed by fire , but formed by the nature change of the clay . :)

I'm pretty far from the $$ mark to buy a double, but, approximately, what would a double in C or G run in price?

I am also intrigued by your new design I just saw on FB this morning.

Kevin, the finish need long time to become firm, since the weather is hot and the humidity is low recently, the lacquer tree finish need moisture to carry on biochemical reactions, I think they still need one week to reaction before I can prepare sound sample. C:

B was one of the many tunings I ordered, so this could be mine.
Not very many people get B, so I'd be surprised if somebody else also got one.

Even in the raw clay, it's a beauty. What kind of a finish did you ask Casper to put on it? :)

Now in my mind is meteor.^^
This is another pendant SF 7 holes , also custom made for one of very handsome TONian, he didn't say I can or can not identify who order this , so I just keep my mouth shut , unless he want to let you know.

I think that is Casper's fiendish plan, Mark. He knows if he keeps posting those pics of his pretty pendants, he'll wear our resistance down. Not that we have much resistance in the first place when it comes to ocarinas. :)

I like that cute little SF pendant. It's adorable. I must counteract the effect it is having on me by consuming a hot fudge sundae or else I would feel compelled to buy it. :eager:
