Michael Topham: My Biog
Michael Topham was born in Yorkshire and studied design at Trent Polytechnic in Nottingham. After a brief spell as an exhibition designer he worked in the Middle East with a leading British sculptor and environmental artist, where he was involved in a diverse range of design activities including interiors and furniture, landscaping design and construction, project management, conceptual design, architectural drawing and model-making.
Mike has exhibited in various galleries throughout UK and the Middle East, and is a member of the Sussex Guild and the Hampshire Artists’ Cooperative. Presently he is a freelance artist and garden designer, and continues to produce amusing creations in a variety of materials including wire, plaster and paper, in both two and three dimensions.
The pieces he has submitted for this auction are all hand-made limited editions, and subject matters are created from various gauges of copper wire and mixed media, giving a three-dimensional effect when mounted.
