Victoria Lansford
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
Post-conceptual artist, educator, and author, Victoria Lansford creates one-of-a-kind wearable sculpture and art objects that evoke the mystery and splendor of ancient masters yet are infused with her own provocative vision. Through her artwork, publications, workshops, and passion for creating, Victoria has generated an international revival of nearly lost, old world metalsmithing techniques, including high relief Eastern repoussé, Russian filigree, chain making, and granulation, and paved the way for metalsmiths to rediscover the variations from other cultures.

Her award winning artwork has appeared in exhibits at the Museum of Contemporary Craft, Houston Museum of Fine Arts, the Wayne Arts Center, the Mulvane Art Museum, the von Liebig Art Center, Houston Center for Contemporary Crafts, Rochester Institute of Technology, and the Georgia Museum and in numerous publications, including the Lark 500 book series, Metalsmith and Jewelry Artist magazines, and on Home and Garden Television. She created the metals program and served as head of the Metalsmithing Department at Spruill Center for the Arts, Atlanta from 1997-2004 and was an adjunct professor at the University of Tennessee.

Her own instructional publications in the series, Metal Techniques of Bronze Age Masters, including Russian Filigree (DVD, 2006), Rings (DVD, 2008), All Chained Up (paperback, 2008), and Eastern Repoussé and Chasing (DVD, 2009) and her application, iMakeJewelry for the Apple iPhone™ have sold throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and the Americas.

Victoria earned her Bachelor of Arts in jewelry design and silversmithing at Georgia State University in 1993 where she studied with Richard Mafong and Gia Gogishvilli. Her artwork is in private collections around the world and is available in art galleries around the United States and through this website. She creates and lives in Atlanta, Georgia.

Tansu Gothic

I am in love with this work by Randi Parkhurst! - Victoria Tansu Gothic is a compelling work that challenges the notions and boundaries of book arts. From the first encounter, a sense of mystery is conveyed by the almost fortress-like architecture…

Hey Victoria, thanks for adding me here. I love the filigree work. I was doing researching about Chinese traditional filigree in Dai Minority in 2005. But I don't think I can do these work. Nice to meet you here!

Wow! I visited your web site. Your work is stunning! I used to make jewelry many years ago and loved it. If only I had more time. Clay is my passion now but I would love to design and make jewelry.
