The license plate on the back of Mike Durham’s pick-up tells his story succinctly: NJOY ART.
He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Art Education from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with additional studies at Arrowmont School of Crafts, Savannah College of Art and Design, and the Archie Bray Foundation. A former N.C. Art Educator of the Year, Mike taught art in the GuilfordCounty and RandolphCountySchools for 30 years. Mike has served as President of the Randolph Arts Guild and continues to be very involved in community arts.
Though much of Mike’s art career has involved pottery-making, he has been very busy lately building whimsical metal sculptures from re-cycled objects.
Mike resides in Asheboro North Carolina with his High School sweetheart. Mike has two sons, Michael and Zachary.
