Victoria Lansford is an alchemical artist who coaxes cold silver and gold into a filigree dance, draws with fire, and hammers soft curves into hard copper.
Blending ancient techniques and modern mastery, she creates as a jazz musician plays, riffing through multi-layered and complex themes, and creating work that is clearly her own no matter the genre.
Her work – from tiny, intricate illuminations to huge copper installations – can seem like ancient artifacts at one moment and entirely contemporary the next, and has earned her exhibitions in many museums and art institutions and an army of devoted collectors.
Never content to hoard information or technical discoveries, Victoria has created a renaissance for many old-world, fine metal techniques, including Russian filigree, granulation, chain making, and Eastern repoussé and chasing. Through her workshops, videos, books, articles, and app, she has mentored creatives around the world.
Victoria’s ground-breaking animated ebook Giving Voice, which has an introduction by best-selling author of the Griffin and Sabine trilogies Nick Bantock, won an Independent Publishers Award for Best Design in 2019 and the e-Literature Award for Best Multi-media Book (silver) in 2020.
Victoria’s studio sits in the shade of old-growth trees on the ancestral lands of the Muscogee People in Atlanta, Georgia. She lives with her husband Chris, son Skyler, and two Shelties Boudica and Elizabeth. She considers the term ‘geek’ a compliment, can’t stand being pigeonholed, and has a creative drive that never lets up.
