On the Thursday, April 29th broadcast, at 3PM PDT and 6PM EDT, my guest is internationally acclaimed artist, educator, author and publisher Victoria Lansford. For more information, see: http://www.victorialansford.com/index.html. Victoria 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. Her 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 the latest edition Eastern Repoussé and Chasing (DVD, 2009) have sold throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia & North and South America. She has also recently released an application for the Apple iPhone™ iMakeJewelry available at the Apple AppStore. Victoria's award winning work has appeared in juried and curated shows throughout the US and has been featured in many books and magazines, including Metalsmith magazine’s 2007 Exhibition in Print, Chasing & Repoussé by Nancy Megan Corwin, Brynmorgan Press (2009), The Jeweler’s Studio Handbook, by Brandon Holschuh, Quarry Books (2009), 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 & 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.
