Victoria creates traditional southeastern woodlands style pottery hand built using the coil method. The tools used are river cane sticks, smooth river stones, bone utensils, horn scrapers and other natural traditional materials used for carving and design.

Clay is found and dug from her home property and other areas of northeast Oklahoma.
The pottery continues the legacy of Cherokee tradition using the skills passed down from mother to daughter.

Currently Victoria's work is being exhibited at the National Museum of the American Indian, 4th floor, Smithsonian Mall. Several works are in the permanent collection of the University of Arkansas in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Victoria was honored in 2012 as a Cherokee National Treasure by the Cherokee Tribe
