Misty Gamble Workshop


Misty Gamble’s work is inspired by the human figure and its infinite

capacity for communication. This makes sense given that, as a child, Misty was

immersed in her father’s world of puppetry and the performing arts. Traveling to

many parts of the world as a young girl and later as an adult, has also made an

indelible impact on her life and work. In 1998, Misty was invited to be the first

American to perform in Iran (since 1979) at the 7th International Puppet Festival

in Tehran. Gamble’s current work, life-size ceramic figurative sculptures, focuses

attention on issues surrounding femininity and challenges conventional

standards of morality, normalcy and propriety. She has taught figure sculpture

classes and intends to teach in a university art program. Misty recently received

the National Conference for the Education of Ceramic Arts Graduate Award in

Excellence and the Ellice T. Johnston Scholarship for Ceramic Arts, awarded

yearly to one ceramics student from the Northern California or Oregon area. In

2007, Misty arrived in Maine to spend a year at the renowned residency

program, Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts, where she earned a

fellowship to continue her studies. Misty received her MFA in Ceramics from San

Francisco State University in the spring of 2007.
