Michael Martindell began welding sculptures in the mid 1990’s at the University of Massachusetts and has been a working artist since graduating in 1995. His studio is in Holyoke, MA where he creates fine art pieces for galleries, private collections, shows, his own amusement – and now the Snow Farm 2017 Limited Edition!

 

Often, Michael finds inspiration from the Saturday morning cartoons of his youth, old Batman comics, and anything strange, unusual, grotesque, and creepy.

tl_files/pages/Donate/lillies from web.jpgFor us, however, he turned to his previous work in flowers, especially lillies.  Last year, Michael taught the two-week welding course in our high school program which takes place in July, when the day lilies at at their peak.  And so the idea was born: to adapt the curving leaf of the lily into a set of elegant candle holders.  Michael hand-cut each leaf and assembled each candlestick, including hammering the back of the leaves for texture and brushing the steel with brass for an extraordinary colored surface. No two are exactly alike and every set is gorgeous.

Michael is a beloved teacher at Snow Farm, with both teen and adult students. In his workshops, students learn to cut, grind and weld metal into whatever they can imagine. Pass the welding barn while Michael is teaching, and you will see hard work and hear laughing among the sparks.
