Our Story

Since 2014, Michael Middleton Ceramics has been using locally-sourced materials to create beautiful, bespoke ceramic art, which support local charities and organizations.

Michael earned his BFA from ODU and teaches art at a local high school, all while being responsible for one of the largest ceramic programs in the state of Virginia.

In 2019, Michael's art took a turn when he came up with the idea of combining Corolla Wild Mustang hair into the local Currituck clay. Each of his wild horse hair creations is exquisitely unique and displayed in a collection of the Corolla Wild Mustang Museum. Preserving the legend of these majestic wild animals is very important to Michael and the local OBX community.
