Blacksmith Mark Puigmarti creates contemporary hand forged metalwork at his unique studio the Sparks Will Fly Forge.

Experience Mark's Virtual Tour


What seems like lifetimes ago Mark was a refrigeration and HVAC mechanic. Working on commercial industrial gizmos that kept things or people warm or cold, while usually experiencing the polar opposite temperature of whatever it was he was trying to rectify.

It is a respectable trade that many men and some women make a respectable living at. However, as much as he tried to make the piping arrangements visually pleasing, orderly, and followable there was something lacking. It just never quite clicked with his persistent dream to follow a more artistic path.

Mark Puigmarti, Blacksmith and metal artist

One day about half way into a 25 year run at HVACR, he made it his mission to try and change what seemed truly unchangeable. Slowly with a long list of coincidences, happy accidents and a $#!+load of sacrifices, particularly by his supportive wife Chris, positive results started to accumulate in the intended direction of working with hot metal.

This did indeed take 10 years of incremental progression to end up at the beginning of a new and completely unrecognizable life and style. It is not lost on him the sheer improbability to do that mid-career, in that career, or any for that matter. That cord was cut 14 years ago now.

Studio 8 - Indoor & Outdoor Tour

For 2021 Mark will be welcoming guests to view his work, and that of his guest artists Pat Neal, David Trotter, and Nancy R. Chalut,  both indoors and outdoors at his forge/studio/gallery.


If you would like to purchase a piece of Mark's work, or request a commission piece, contact Mark directly through his website, by email, or by giving him a call.
