Taking Scrap And Making Art
Beginning in 1973 and continuing through this day, Mark Blumenstein has always worked to recycle materials into objects that are kinetic and work with the elements. Much of this work requires the use of heat and force, while learning to use the tools that will withstand these elements and assist towards the creation of the final statement of each work. Mark started using old farm machinery and springs, parts of old wood burning stoves and bicycles. His work has evolved to converting old silver pieces into whimsical table-top art works. Blumenstein was inspired by a commissioning of 30 pieces by the Greenbrier Resort for a restaurant for they were planning.
Mark continues to be active in using both mediums and still enjoy discovering the hidden magic that comes from working with the blue flame and the heated metals. He accepts commissions from both business and private alike and will entertain offers of major works for public display.
