Steel sculpture by Mike Markham
Mike Markham received a BA in art education and an MFA in sculpture and three- dimensional design at ASU. He taught high school and university art classes and then was a self-employed custom furniture designer and builder. He has spent the majority of his adult life as a sculptor, creating non-objective, contemporary works and has exhibited throughout the United States.
Both Mike and his wife, Pat, strive for perfection of form and function with simple and elegant design and finish. They have developed an appreciation for and have been influenced by Asian shapes and colors. Their work reflects a calm, meditative feel. Together they frequently collaborate on their art, with Pat usually creating the clay aspects and Mike adding the sculptural parts with various media. Both Markhams are long time participants in the Sonoran Arts League signature Hidden in the Hills Studio Tour, and can be found this year at Studio #27.
This piece can be hung either vertically or horizontally; it is 4 ft. long x 24 inches wide x 4 inches deep and is painted a soothing shade of ivory.
