David Gamble has over four decades of balancing art and business in the ceramics industry. While making clay art and teaching, he also developed products and designed marketing campaigns. Gamble has conducted hundreds of workshops in North America, and he has participated in five clay symposiums in Eastern Europe. He holds a Master of Fine Arts degree and contributes an educational focus to the kilns and pottery wheels for Skutt Ceramic Products.

"The glaze surface has always interested me more than the sculptural possibilities in clay," said Gamble. "I layer and multi-fire glaze combinations as if I were using oil paints. I have found I am able to produce what many might consider glaze defects, with some control. This allows me to achieve interesting surfaces, depth, and imagery like I were painting."

* UE Swimming & Diving Earns Scholar All-America Team Honors Once Again

The University of Evansville men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams have earned Scholar All-America Team honors from the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) for their work in the classroom during the fall 2021 semester.

The UE women were one of 171 Division I women’s programs to earn CSCAA Scholar All-America Team honors while compiling a 3.47 team GPA during the fall.  Meanwhile, the UE men were one of 99 Division I men’s programs to garner the award after posting a 3.24 team GPA in the fall.  It marks the third-straight year in which both UE programs earned Scholar All-America Team honors under the direction of third-year head coach Stuart Wilson.

“Succeeding in the pool and in the classroom is one of the benchmarks of our program here at the University of Evansville,” said Wilson.  “I am really proud of the effort that the student-athletes put in both in the pool and in the classroom this past fall.  They really excelled in both areas this fall.”

Evansville will return to the pool this Friday when UE travels north to Bloomington, Indiana to battle the nationally-ranked Indiana University Hoosiers.  Friday’s meet begins at 2 p.m. eastern, 1 p.m. central.
