Corrina Sephora Mensoff- Artist of Metal and More
Corrina began her life-long interest in metalworking at the age of five in her father’s workshop. At an early age, she was introduced to boats and boat building. Corrina went on to receive her BFA in Sculpture and Metalsmithing at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. After graduating in 1995 she moved to Atlanta, GA. After two years of working in the field, Corrina established a sculpture studio, specializing in sculpture, furniture, and architectural works.
In 2005, Corrina received her MFA in Sculpture at Georgia State University. She has taught on the college level, and presented at national and international blacksmithing conferences and workshops. Her metalworking awards include: “Best in Show” from Annette Cone Skelton of MOCA GA, Silver Award from Icarus International, Silver Sculpture Award from NOMMA, and various other awards for her works. Corrina’s metalwork is on permanent display in Atlanta at: the law firm of King and Spaulding’s Contemporary Art Collection, The Atlanta Botanical Gardens, Temple Sinai, the Martin Luther King National Historic Site, and in many private collections internationally. She continues to exhibit in museums, galleries, and public art venues.
Corrina is skilled in: client relations, problem-solving, designing and engineering of sculpture and architectural work from concept to installation. Her own personal work often uses the imagery of boats and ships as metaphors for various life experiences, and as story telling tools.
