ABOUT THE ARTIST
Mark Woodham is new to western North Carolina as a wood and metalworker, but is no stranger to the arts business. For 25 years, Woodham was an owner and glassblower at a studio in Columbia, SC. During that time he engaged in wood and metalworking as a hobby in which he felt truly expressive. In early 2017, Woodham made the leap from hot glass in the Midlands of South Carolina to organic woodgrain and cool metal lines in the mountains of Burnsville, NC. His work focuses on the union of wood and metal to create functional and decorative accessories and sculpture. With reverence for the subject matter, Woodham is inspired by flora, fauna, and cultural artifacts, is a member of the Toe River Arts Coucil and the Burnsville-Yancey Chamber of Commerce.
