ABOUT THE JUROR
Liz Zlot Summerfield grew up in Northern California as a child of both an entrepreneur and a lover of the arts. Both parents instilled a determination and confidence in her that she could succeed at anything she worked towards.
She attended the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis to complete her Masters of Fine Arts in 2004. Since graduation, she has lived and worked as a studio artist in Bakersville, North Carolina with her husband and glass artist, Scott Summerfield. They share a large outbuilding that houses each of their studios and a showroom for their work. She has been an instructor and visiting artist at numerous clay facilities, colleges, and universities. She exhibits and sells her work nationally through exhibitions, galleries, and fine craft shows.
Her work resides in various permanent collections. She has been featured and on the cover of Ceramics Monthly and Clay Times magazine. She has also written several articles and created an instructional DVD produced by Ceramics Arts Daily featuring her ceramic process and her work.
In 2018 she co-created the Red Handed Symposium, a conference solely devoted to low-fire earthenware enthusiasts.
