Magda Gluszek is a figurative ceramic sculptor, creating her artwork from clay as well as mixed media. She currently lives in Northeastern Arizona, where she feels deeply inspired by and connected to the surrounding high desert environment. Her sculptures illustrate visual narratives that investigate how humans construct their identities through social, cultural and environmental influences.  

Magda earned her MFA in ceramics at the University of Florida and continued on as a resident artist at the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, Tennessee and Roswell Art Center West in Roswell, Georgia. She has also been an artist in residence internationally at C.R.E.T.A. Rome, the Skopelos Foundation for the Arts in Greece and at La Fragua in Belalcazar, Spain. Magda was an Invited Artist at the 2010 Figurative Association Symposium at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts and a 2011 NCECA Emerging Artist. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and she has instructed workshops at several nationally recognized art centers, including Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, Santa Fe Clay, Reitz Ranch Center for the Ceramic Arts, and Clay Arts Vegas. Magda is also full-time art faculty and gallery director at Northland Pioneer College in Show Low, Arizona.
