Internationally acclaimed artist, educator, author and publisher Victoria Lansford creates one-of-a-kind wearable pieces of art and art objects that evoke the mystery and splendor of ancient masters, yet are infused with her own provocative vision. She has pushed the boundaries of design and execution in many old world techniques, including high relief Eastern repoussé, Russian filigree, chain making, and granulation in over 20 years of comprehensive exploration of metal as art.
Victoria's award winning work has appeared in juried and curated shows, including most recently Metal Inclinations 2, presented by the Society for Midwest Metalsmiths, National Art Encounter, The von Liebig Art Center, Naples, FL, and eXtreme Tea, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. Her artwork has also been featured in many books and magazines, including Metalsmith magazine’s 2007 Exhibition in Print, Chasing & Repoussé by Nancy Megan Corwin, The Jeweler’s Studio Handbook, by Brandon Holschuh, multiple issues of Lapidary Journal: Jewelry Artist magazine, Art Jewelry magazine, and on Home & Garden Television’s 2007 season of That’s Clever.
A long time educator in the arts, she is committed to sustaining ancient techniques by passing on this ancient knowledge to other artists. She served as head of the Jewelry and Metalsmithing Department at the Spruill Center for the Arts in Atlanta from 1997 to 2004, creating its comprehensive program, and was an adjunct professor at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Victoria continues to teach and mentor students throughout the world.
Victoria’s internationally collected artwork is available in art galleries around the United States and through this website. She creates and lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
