What is an ocarina? The ocarina is an ancient wind musical instrument—a type of vessel flute. Variations exist, but a typical ocarina is an enclosed space with four to twelve finger holes and a mouthpiece that projects from the body.
This particular handmade ocarina is part of the "Feathered Friends" series created by artist Viktoria Bridgeford. Viktoria is originally from Russia and lives in Southwest Florida. In Russia she earned a Masters Degree in Art Education, specializing in Special Education. Currently Viktoria creates many different types of unique art including ceramics, canvas paintings and a wide array of crafts for sale. She also runs an art program for disabled children and adults, and teaches ceramics classes at a local pottery studio.
