Fine purple clay ocarinas by Song Wei, China's master craftsman

Sometimes quality is found in surprising places, away from all the chatter and bustle of the crowded and noisy marketplace… in the quiet and uncomplicated serenity of a small shop, a master artisan creates in unfettered freedom. No daily output quotas, no bottom line business pressure. Just the patient shaping of purple clay, each instrument piece fashioned individually by skilled and seasoned hands.

A pause to chat with a walk-in visitor, offering a few playing tips for the beginner… a drop-by visit from an old friend and veteran player who picks up an ocarina and fills the shop with wonderful sound. 


Welcome to the world of Song Wei and ICO!

More than ocarina making, this is where the sounds of beautiful ocarina music are born.
