ABOUT THE ARTIST
In January 2002 Mark Puigmarti officially opened his Sparks Will Fly Forge to the public. Since then, he has been busy creating original works for private and commercial clients.
Mark's creations combine originality, proportion, substance and attention to the overall “feel” of the work. Blending traditional forging techniques with fresh design results in time- enduring treasures.
Mark feels that it's important to challenge himself to create designs that are not typical for ironwork because the resulting expression is individual and intriguing.
Mark's approach to this work is with a touch of naiveté and loads of patience. This establishes a borderless environment for the creative process.
