Medalta International Tool Show winner Valerie Zimany will share a variety of surface decoration techniques she learned during several long term residencies in Japan. In particular she will be sharing the techniques associated with Kutani ware, known for its rich and brightly coloured surfaces. Students will fuse these ancient techniques with modern materials to produce stunning surfaces on their own glazed ware.
Currently an Assistant Professor of Art, Ceramics, at Clemson University, Clemson, SC, Valerie Zimany received her BFA from the University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA.

She was recently awarded a second Fulbright grant by the U.S. Department of Education for her proposal Porcelain Fever: Contemporary Kutani Practitioners and Processes, and returned to Kanazawa as a guest researcher at the Institute of Art and Design, Kanazawa College of Art in Summer and Fall 2011.
