Mike Fowle is a champion of green and found art creations. His mobile-style sculptures are reminiscent of work by Alexander Calder. A residency with Mike will not only teach students about art, it will give them an understanding of limitless possibilities of artistic creation.
Mike’s Description of His Own Work:
I create sculpture using natural materials and/or found objects. I also hand build clay sculptures using traditional methods and the Patz Process Ceramic Technique.
I am a contemporary visual artist working in 2D and 3D mediums. I maintain a working studio where I create art for public and private collections. Some of my metal sculptures are exhibited on the grounds of the Florence Museum, Florence South Carolina.
In 2008 the Lynches River County Park commissioned me to create a permanent Wall Sculpture for the Enviromental Discovery Center where it is now on display. I also had a metal sculpture in the Palmetto Hands 2008-2009 traveling exhibition, sponsored by the South Carolina State Museum. I can often be found volunteering my time at the Florence Museum, where I help to preserve and display the Museums collection of fine art and historic artifacts.
