Misty Gamble

Misty Gamble is here at the Art Institute as a sabbatical replacement for George Timock for the fall semester of 2008.  Today she shared her views about figurative ceramic sculpture while elaborating on the building techniques and source material used to create her work.  It is always interesting to see how artist interact with their pieces while in the creative process.  Misty is very gestural and physical when addressing her art.  She moves around the piece at a quick rate surveying its form, rapidly adding and subtracting clay where needed.  She has defiantly left her mark upon the students here. video
