About Victoria

For over 25 years post-conceptual artist, educator, and author, Victoria Lansford has created 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.
