Chris and Karen Montgomery and Mike Markham are the owners of Elizabeth Keith Designs located in Cary, North Carolina. In the fall of 2009 when they decided to start their own business they moved from Los Angeles to Cary, North Carolina and launched “Elizabeth Keith Designs.”
The sun and the moon are constants in our lives, radiating light and life, always with us but ever changing. Artist Michael Markham has been drawn to these celestial symbols throughout his artistic career, rendering sun and moon faces in silver, in fine woodwork and in clay. “The sun is always rising” says the artist. “Perhaps that’s why it’s such a potent symbol for me. It’s reborn every morning.”
Working in his home studio, Michael sculpts the original designs in clay, striving to infuse each one with individual warmth and character. The faces are then carefully cast in durable materials.
